Meet the Talented Cast of Netflix's New Ballet Drama, Tiny Pretty Things
If you're looking for a Netflix show to binge this December, then you should probably check out Tiny Pretty Things. Based on the YA book series of the same name by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton, this dance drama is set in the world of Chicago's only elite ballet academy, The Archer School, following a new girl who steps in after the school's star student is put out of commission by a mysterious accident. It looks like Bunheads meets Pretty Little Liars, and unlike so many dance shows and movies, it features actual dancers. Check out the gallery to learn more about the cast before Tiny Pretty Things drops on Dec. 14.
