Center Stage: On Pointe characters dance in exclusive clip

But has she got the feet?

Posted on


It’s time to watch people raise their arms beautifully all over again.

The American Ballet Company steps back into the spotlight on Saturday with Center Stage: On Pointe, reuniting characters from the classic 2000 film and its 2008 sequel. In this exclusive clip from Lifetime’s upcoming original movie, Tommy (Kenny Wormald) finds Bella (Nicole Muñoz) freestyling in a practice studio and joins her on the dance floor.

“It’s not ballet,” Bella tells him, “but I realized a while ago that the glass slipper wasn’t for me.”

But now that Jonathan (Peter Gallagher) is shaking things up at the ABC, Tommy thinks Bella might find a place there after all. Check out the clip above, and remember: Whatever you feel, just dance it.

Center Stage: On Pointe premieres June 25 at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
