    Renew Breaking Pointe for season please, please! I loved season 1 and thought season2 was even better! Please renew!!!

  2. Desiree says

    I Love this show. It is nice to see the real struggles and triumphs of real dancers that I can’t get enough of. This is such a beautiful artform that has never been fully appreciated. Please, please cancel. We want more Breaking Point!!!!!!!!!

  3. Kristen says

    I LOVE this show. Please do not cancel Breaking Pointe!!! Getting to know these dancers (ok, and pretend I’m one of them) is the highlight of my week :) I started watching because I love ballet, but I feel so invested in these people’s lives and would miss them terribly!

  4. Louise says

    Love love LOVE!!! Breaking Pointe! Didn’t know this show existed until midway through season two. Had to get caught up on season one and prior episodes online! Sure it would be great if they showed more actual dance-even just practice time of the individual dancers in the studio alone-but the dance they do show and the personalities of the cast are so great, down to earth yet realistic and exceptional-especially Christianna’s professionalism, it’s a real treat that I look forward to each week! Please renew this show or sell it to another network. It’s deserves a third season.

  5. Lisa says

    Love this show, found it by accident and couldn’t wait for season 2 to start. Now I am hoping to see a season 3! Please don’t cancel it!

    I’ll watch it because at least it’s ballet, but I FF through about 70% of it. I realize they can only show limited choreography, but you could show classes, not just company class, focus on steps a dancer’s struggling with and how they resolve it, issues with injuries, shoes, costumes, how it all gets done before it goes before a live audience, anything with Adam about running the company. Keep the canned chats and personal lives to a bare minimum. People are watching this because they love ballet. I’m surprised the ratings didn’t get worse, because there seemed to be less dancing than ever.

    Love breaking Pointe and though I don’t have cable I watch it on Hulu. Ratings low? Yeah but I don’t believe it’s the show, it’s the network. 1st it’s not promoted at all, 2nd occurs during the summer when people typically don’t stay out and watch tv and 3) When compared to other shows on CW this one is not a show like the others on the network; implying maybe people who typically watch the cw and breaking pointe might be two different audiences.

    Loved season 2, and even more than 1, I had no idea it was back on for a second season and found it by accident. I look forward to season 3. Please bring it back. <3

  9. Sandy says

    Please renew Breaking Pointe for season 4. It is an unusual reality show, that does not have constant screaming at each other. Enjoyed watching it, even though there were not that many shows in the series.

      Please don’t cancel Breaking Pointe. I have enjoyed watching Rex, Allison, Beckanne, Ronnie, Christriana, Chris, Josh, Zach and Adam. I look forward to watching them dance and knowing more about their lives. Please bring Breaking Pointe back for it’s 3rd Season and hopefully more seasons to follow.

  10. says

    Please, Please, Please don’t cancel Breaking . I love this show and enjoy watching Rex, Beckanne, Allison, Josh, Silver, Chris, Christiana, Ronnie, Ronald, Kathleen, Zach, Ian and Adam. They all are beautiful dancers and I love hearing about their lives. Please let there be a Season 3.

  11. Kathy says

    Love this show. Please bring it back for a third season. Suggest you promote it more. I have never seen this show promoted. I discovered it purely by accident.

  12. Becky Forland says

    Yes. I do enjoy Breaking Pointe and want it to return for season 3…. or go to a new network if the CW does not renew it. Perhaps another network will be a better fit? …. sorry to say.
