Breaking Pointe (7 p.m., CW/Ch. 30) is about ballet. Specifically, it's about Ballet West right here in Salt Lake City.
But it's not what you might expect. This six-episode documentary series shows us what it's like to be a ballet dancer, and it's not easy. You have to be a great athlete. More often tha not, you have to survive and overcome injuries. You have to be highly competitive.
The folks at Ballet West are clearly hoping this raises the profile of the company. But they're doing so by opening themselves up to a national television audience.
