    I am so disappointed. I fell in love with all the dancers, their unique stories and lives. I miss watching the classes, rehearsals, and performances. In terms of “reality” tv, it was my favorite. Please bring back Breaking Pointe!!!

    Yes how sad that we can’t see how the dancers progress. We have watched all the programs and sorry that CW doesn’t find it important to keep something in the arts on the air.

    I loved this show and was sorry to see it off the air. Hopefully it will come back on someday. I have been in the dance world for along time and appreciated all their hard work.

    It is very sad that a program showcasing such amazing talent has been cancelled…. Thank goodness we still have Honey Boo Boo and the Housewives of Atlanta….

    So sorry to hear it was cancelled. I’ve been waiting and waiting for it to return. It was a good series that showed the real inner workings of the dance world! After not hearing anything about season 3 …I did a web search only to read it was cancelled back in janurary. CW way to let the show’s fans find out ( by having to search online).
