Have you heard of ABC Family's new series, Bunheads?
It's about a Vegas showgirl who marries a man, moves to his small hometown,
and becomes a teacher at her mother-in-law's ballet studio.

I'll be honest, I can sense the obvious themes of the show
(too strict mother-in-law, uptight ballet students and their parents, and blah blah blah) but I am anxious to see a few things:
1. Amy Sherman-Palladino, of Gilmore Girls, is the executive producer and I love love love Gilmore Girls.
2. How television portrays ballet dancer fashion.
Gilmore Girls got Stella McCartney to style Lorelei and Rory,
so I'm excited to see the styling of the Bunheads, dancers and non dancers.
3. From the looks of this photo, the ballerinas in the show look healthy and strong.
I'm curious to see what stereotypes they play into and the barriers they break.
4. The story takes place in a sleepy, coastal town (aka, my dream place to live).
I adored Stars Hollow and I cannot wait to see what this new one looks like.
Bunheads airs June 11th on ABC Family.
Will you be watching?
Were you a Gilmore Girls fanatic like me?
I became obsessed with blazers, burgers, and small towns because of it.
