CW president Mark Pedowitz noted the cancellation at the network’s portion of the Television Critics Association winter press tour today. He said, “I wish it did better… Docusoaps are very hard for broadcasters to get going versus cable.”

    So disappointed. This was a unique look at the world of dance,its beauty and its difficulties.
    Such an improvement over all the other reality nonsense.

    I loved this show and learned so much about ballet and the dancers lives. I am so sad to see it go. I have been watching it on PlayOn due to schedule conflicts on my end and was so hoping to see what’s next. The music on the show is some of the best I have heard applied to a tv series ever.

    I will miss the show, loved watching it. I’s really sad, I was here looking for the date season 3 would begin only to find out the show was canceled. This show was so much better than anything on that channel. I think it was a big mistake & hope some other channel picks it up.

    This was far from the worst show out there, providing us with facts about the world of ballet that we’d never know otherwise. Apparently, not enough of us were curious about ballet and the Neilsens dried up.
