Flesh and Bone Trailer: Starz Ballet Drama Shows the Dark Side of Dance

If you’re of the mind that ballet is all about poufy tutus and curtain calls, Starz’s Flesh and Bone would like you to think again.

In the following first trailer for the limited series, a young dancer named Claire (played by Black Swan‘s Sarah Hay) has a very rough introduction to the competitive world of professional ballet.

Insults are yelled, chairs are thrown — though all of the abuse at the studio seems to pale in comparison to what’s going on for Claire at home. (Might the door-banger be the mysterious, unwelcome visitor from her past?)

Center Stage fans will appreciate the shot of Sascha Radetsky, who starred in the film and is part of Flesh and Bone‘s dance troupe, and the fact that Claire’s employer, American Ballet Company, shares a name with the company in the movie. (Hey, if Charlie’s there, what are the chances that Eva Rodriguez will twirl through? Answer: Low. Very low. Nearly nonexistent.)

Press PLAY on the video below for your first glimpse of Flesh and Bone, which premieres Sunday, Nov. 8.
