A rare glimpse into the competitive world of classical ballet, Ballet Girls takes us behind-the-scenes of a professional ballet school. In the open audition room, young pre-teen girls compete for coveted spots within the school and face the drama and painstaking realities of chasing their dreams. The three-part series concludes with a triumphant performance for one aspiring ballerina as Clara in the company’s annual production of The Nutcracker.
