I love this show!  It is an australian show so the only way you can watch it is on netflix streaming (they have all the episodes from both seasons up right now even though the series just ended today in australia) or youtube (some people have uploaded it there and since it isn't really broadcast in the U.S. it is legal).  I guess season one is on teen nick but I don't know anyone that actually has that channel. 
 
Anyway it is about teens at an elite ballet school in sydney.  So beautiful setting and fun dancing.  The characters are all pretty likeable, it is a young teen show so nothing very scandalous goes on, and the episodes are 26 min or so long so it doesn't have to take up a lot of time to watch.  And the actors themselves are pretty refreshing in that none of the girls are super skinny and almost everyone is normal looking.  I mean they are attractive but believably attractive.  And they where clothes that aren't always flattering and look like something kids in their situation could actually afford. 
 
Anyone into teen dramas should check this out.  Season two is better acted but I fell in love with the show season one and the acting isn't bad at all.   Teens that actually act like teens, it is so refreshing to see on tv!

How appropriate would it be for younger kids?  Sierra is 10, and would probably love a show like that.  Is there much "teen drama", boyfriend/girlfriend stuff, or girls being mean to each other?

Yeah I would watch a few episodes.  It does have boyfriend girlfriend stuff although mostly harmless and realistic crush behaviour.  There is one episode in the middle of the season where a couple things about having sex but they end up not doing it and it isn't the biggest issue of the episode.  I actually can't recall sex being discussed by any other of the couples at all in either season.  One of the characters also questions his sexuality in the first season and there is a boy/boy kiss and hand holding in the second season but again I think it is pretty tame and played really low key for the most part. 
 
Mean girl stuff is actually a significant part of both season.  There are a couple of characters that like to do things to put other dancers at a disadvantage but most characters are nice and they all end up friendly enough eventually.

Katie it would be hard to hear about in the U.S. because it isn't advertised here at all.  It shows late at night or something on teen Nick but most people don't watch or have that channel.  I think all the actors are Australian, filmed in Sydney, not available on Hulu, etc.  I just found it because I scan the new releases or recently added on netflix and saw it and since I like to watch dance things and teen dramas I gave it a try.  Dd likes to watch it with me sometimes and ds2 likes the music and dancing in it, it helps him go to sleep.
