In the winter premiere “Channing Tatum is a Fine Actor,” it’s been several months since the Nutcracker fiasco, where Michelle (Foster) accidentally maced the young performers of Paradise Dance Academy. Now she’s crashing on her friend’s couch and working as a dancer for a small-time magician in Henderson, NV.
Meanwhile in Paradise, the dance studio is closed down, leaving the students to keep busy on their own. Ginny (Bailey Buntain) has taken over her mother’s real estate business; Melanie (Emma Dumont) has been caring for her grandpa, and Boo (Kaitlyn Jenkins) is pulling her hair out taking care of her little brother while her pregnant mother is on bed rest. After a summer at Joffrey, Sasha (Telles) returns but refuses to head back home, instead hiding out with friends.

“The first ten episodes set up the story and made people kind fall in love with the characters. The next eight are going to be really fun, and we reveal cliffhangers!” Julia recently told Teen Vogue mag.
Psst, did you know that Emma is still working on her dancing career? “Going to audition for @JoffreySchool for the 3rd yr and hopefully going to Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow next summer! #Bunheads #nervous” she tweeted earlier this week.
Emma Dumont and Aimee Teegarden hit the red carpet at the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party on Thursday night (September 27) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The 17-year-old Bunheads actress was also joined by co-star Kaitlyn Jenkins.
According to TVLine, the ABC Family show will be adding two new ballet dancers — a brother sister duo — to the cast.
Maggie is described as a bright, quirky 15- to 17-year-old who has an “indie Winona Ryder” vibe about her. Jack is around the same age and also is an individualist; both characters do their own thing and spend a lot of time in each other’s company.
The characters would recur on the show, which returns in January 2013.
