"Dance Academy" (TeenNick TV show) is a half-hour drama from Australia that follows small town girl Tara Webster (Xenia Goodwin) as she pursues her dream of becoming a professional ballet dancer at the fictitious National Academy of Dance.

"Dance Academy" follows Tara and a group of ordinary teenagers as they push themselves to achieve extraordinary things in the competitive world of dance. Relationships will grow and change as they live side by side in the Boarding House and each will discover their own path as they navigate the minefield of elite dance training and the universal challenge of being a teenager. The stakes are high as the teens can't forget that at the end of the year some dance hopefuls will get cut.

After 15-year-old Tara spins her way into the National Academy of Dance, the best school in the country, she is positive her life will be spectacular. She's lucky to have been born with athleticism almost perfectly suited for ballet; however, she's far behind in her training. In addition to intense training schedules and her troubles on the dance floor, Tara quickly realizes 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 this dream more difficult to achieve than she thought.

Fortunately, Tara's not alone in her expedition. She's joined by carefree Kat Karamakov (Alicia Banit), the daughter of dance world superstars. Kat couldn't care less about ballet, and if she's stuck at boarding school, she's going to cause as much mischief as possible. Then, there's Kat's older brother, Ethan Karamakov (Tim Pocock), who is gorgeous, talented, in his third year at the Academy and Tara's first crush. Also among Tara's peers: rebellious adrenaline junkie, Christian Reed (Jordan Rodrigues), who likes skateboards more than ballet shoes; loveable Sammy Lieberman (Tom Green), whose parents want their clever son to be a doctor, not a dancer; and Abigail Armstrong (Dena Kaplan) who is the best in the class and not afraid to let everyone know.

"Dance Academy" is produced by Werner Film Productions in association with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and ZDF.
