Love it or hate it, Breaking Pointe, the reality show following Ballet West, is firmly a part of the dance ecosystem. For our July issue, we talked to BW artists (both featured on the show and not) about its impact on their lives, dancing and otherwise. Find out their code word for "Are you miked?" here.


Watch Allison DeBona and Rex Tilton in action at our photo shoot here, and check out some additional images below:

Season Two premieres on The CW Network on July 22 at 9:00PM/8:00c. We hope (are we a broken record at this point?) that we'll get more dancing this time around.
