Programme Information

Nickelodeon raises the curtain on Dance Academy, a half-hour drama that follows small town girl Tara Webster as she pursues her dream of becoming a professional ballet dancer at the fictitious National Academy of Dance. 
After 15-year-old Tara spins her way into the best school in the country, she is positive her life will be spectacular. She’s lucky to have been born with an athleticism almost perfectly suited for ballet but she’s far behind in her training.
In addition to intense work out schedules and her troubles on the dance floor, Tara quickly realises there’s a lot more to survive than just dancing at this school - a spiteful roommate, first-time heartbreak and homesickness blend together to make her dream more difficult to achieve than she initially thought.
