A Pittsburgh Youth Ballet Company dancer is gracing the big screen in a new show centered on the beauty and elegance, as well as the intensity and competitivity, of ballet.
DeBona studied and performed at the McMurray studio for five years. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, she grew up in New Castle, graduated from Chartiers Valley High School and attended Indiana University in Bloomington while training with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's graduate program.
Her new venue captures all things light and dark about the precise dance form.
Shot in rich, cinematic style, "Breaking Pointe" follows the inner workings of elite Salt Lake City Ballet Company, Ballet West, according to the show's website.
"Breaking Pointe" airs on the CW on Thursdays at 8 p.m. (It reruns on Mondays at 8 p.m.) You can view previous episodes here.
