Product Description

In Season 1 Volume 2, Tara returns from the holidays excited to have been awarded a first year scholarship, but the rest of the year is full of challenges no one could have seen coming.

The group continues to put all their effort into dancing, but along the way some battle eating disorders, struggle with their parents, overcome physical injury and even deal with big breakups.

With the end-of-year Nutcracker performance approaching, can the Academy group pull it together? And does Tara really have what it takes to stand center stage?

For the first time on DVD, see 13 episodes from Season 1 and take a special behind-the-scenes look at the making of the hit drama series about chasing dreams with your very own backstage pass.

Format:DVD
The popular Australian teen import "Dance Academy" has been discovered and embraced by North American audiences after its run on TeenNICK and its availability on Netflix. Its first two seasons are getting an official DVD release, however, for those that want to add it to their permanent DVD collection. I always have to question the marketing thought process behind the decision to split television seasons into different products. I understand, perhaps, if the season airs over two distinct time periods and you want to rush the first batch of episodes to market. But in this case, these are all ready to go. And instead of Season One and Season Two sets with all 26 episodes present, we're getting each Season in Two Volumes of 13 episodes. Truthfully, it doesn't make it any less expensive to the consumer. Are there a bunch of viewers that are going to say "I loved the first half of Season Two, but who wants the second half?" Doubtful and especially so when they are released on the same day! It just makes it more confusing.

"Dance Academy" features the struggles and successes of a young heroine, Tara Webster. Initially, the show plays much as a fish out of water tale as Tara leaves her rural existence for the dream of attending the National Academy of Dance in Sydney. She certainly isn't prepared for what she'll find, with great highs and surprising lows. As she continues in her travels, though, the program expertly integrates the rest of the cast into a thoughtful teen ensemble. You show is humorous without being snarky, and covers important issues without being overtly preachy. It's a winning combination and easy to like. Through all of the personal drama, the show never fails to impress with the dance element. There's is no denying that the cast can dance, and it's a joy to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars great mix of dancing, drama and comedy August 22, 2014

Absolutely wonderful series. Lead dancer, Tara, is exquisite, and other dancers are outstanding. Hard to believe there is this much talent in Australia and grateful I was flipping through channels on TV and saw this show accidentally one Saturday so bought the collection. Only thing NOT believable is the lack of adults in the dorms at nighttime and the fact that most of the kids actually get along with each other.
