Has anyone been watching this?

http://www.nzballet.org.nz/secretlives

It just finished and i've caught a few eps. It was ok, nice at times, "stagey" at others. It's more a backstage, behind-the-scenes show than what we call a "reality" show here, although there is the (contrived) tension of if the new hires will have their contracts extended. It seems geared at the teenaged girl demographic and didn't show enough of the real dancing/training for my tastes, but it was nice to see a major ballet company highlighted like this. Hopefully the show's ratings were good enough to warrant attention. After all, since US TV rips off other countries' all the time, maybe they could do a show like this for NYCB or ABT?

Thanks so much for that clip- I really enjoyed it too. I am in Australia and can't watch it on the TV3 website - you don't happen to have the rest of it on Youtube? I'd love to see the series!
