Teen Vogue

If you’ve been following season two of Teen Vogues reality web series “Strictly Ballet,” you know that the stakes are high for its anxious stars. The show, which follows six pre-professional dancers at the Miami City Ballet School, has been leading up to a major school performance—and MCB artistic director Lourdes Lopez is closely watching. For Carlos, Valeriia, Mayumi, Gustavo and Ella, their futures are on the line.


Teen Vogue’s “Strictly Ballet” is back. The popular web series, which took us inside the lives of School of American Ballet students last year, heads to Florida and into the halls of the Miami City Ballet School. The show, which premiered May 20, follows seven MCBS dancers between ages 14 and 21, and from countries ranging from Brazil to Russia. Each faces the agonizing question of whether they’ll be successful in their chosen profession.

Many of you may remember last summer’s “Strictly Ballet,” Teen Vogue’s reality web series that took viewers inside the high-pressure lives of six students at the School of American Ballet. And you may especially remember those nerve-racking class scenes with Peter Martins, ballet master in chief of New York City Ballet, as he assesses SAB’s highest level students for possible company apprenticeships.

AOL Originals first took us into New York City Ballet's Lincoln Center studios in city.ballet., and now Teen Vogue is doing the same—but this time, the camera is on the School of American Ballet. Strictly Ballet, which launched its first episode today, will follow students at various stages of their training, including dancers in their last year who are waiting to see if Peter Martins will hire them as NYCB apprentices. Episodes will be released regularly through the end of June.
