Imagine Documentaries has partnered with the School of American Ballet and DCTV for “On Pointe,” a docuseries that will take an inside look at the rigorous training program at the nation’s foremost school for ballet professionals.
The agreement calls for Imagine to work with the School of American Ballet and DCTV on a series chronicling the pursuit by young ballet hopefuls of training and acceptance into the New York City Ballet and other companies around the world.
The School of American Ballet has been a premier dance academy for 85 years but has never before allowed documentary filmmakers access to its inner workings.
The series has not yet been shopped to TV buyers. Imagine Documentaries recently inked a first-look pact with Apple but it’s unclear if “On Pointe” will end up there.
