Bunheads – ABC Family

ABC Family's Bunheads
Amy Sherman-Palladino, the  Emmy nominated producer of ‘The Gilmore Girls’ has created a new prime-time pilot for ABC Family and auditions are starting soon.

ABC Family has picked up a pilot order for ‘Bunheads’, a one hour scripted drama set in the world of ballet/dance  and they are looking for fresh faced young dance enthusiasts to fill out the cast of this sure-to-be hit.

Written as an homage to her childhood with her dancer mother and her own attempts at ballet, ‘Bunheads’ follows the story of a once-promising dancer who has fallen from Broadway to Vegas. After a shotgun marriage she moves to the east coast and starts teaching at her mother-in-law’s dance school.

if you have ever dreamed of performing in front of the camera for millions of viewers on national television this is your opportunity. Information on casting calls can be found here abcfamilyauditions.com/2011/10/abc-family-series-bunheads-talent.html  Auditions will be held in Los Angeles and New York so leave a comment below if you’d love to be a part of it.

Break out your dancing shoes and strut your stuff!  Dance on the wings of stardom!  It’s your time to be a star!

  1. My name is Sara DuVall and I would love to be apart of this!!!
    I have had 26 years of dance experience, I’ve been to 2 Disney auditions,performed in several theater productions and I’m part of a talent Agency!
    I can do my own stunts if needed and I can do many accents! I am willing to change m appearance as well.
    This is a great opportunity for me to get my foot in the door of acting!
    I have dreamed of being in movies and t.v. Shows for years! I believe I would be a good contribution to this!!!
    Dancing and acting are my two great passions and to put them together would mean the world!
    Thank you!!

  3. Hello! My name is Rickileigh, I'm 15 I've been dancing since I was 3. I have done mostly modern, jazz, hip-hop and some contemporary. Dancing really is everything to me, I've always wanted to dancing for a big audience and i think I would be perfect for the show! I have wickedly curly auburn hair, 5"8 and have blue-green eyes, I'm pretty laid back and very much up for trying new things all the time. I like to have fun and I'm told that 'I'm always laughing' Please, please consider me for the show 😀 😀

  4. Hi!

    I am Elisabeth and I am currently 15 turning 16 in November.

    I have been dancing since I was one, acting since I was in 1st grade, and singing since I was in kindergarten.

    Please consider me because dance is my life. I am also pale, which is a good thing. I am en pointe and I love the show!


  5. I can't believe I am doing this…I am a 45 year old mom who is a huge Amy Sherman-Palladino fan. Gilmore Girls spoke to me as a young mom whose daughter's age mirrored Rory's at the time of the show. My daughter's friends all call me Lorelai, and I relish it! If you are in need of a fun mom on the show, I'm your gal! I'm a little loud with a perpetual smile, and a penchant for storytelling. I am a power walker, a loud car singer, a political news junkie, and am obsessed with home magazines. Pick me, pick me! Based on the other entries I guess I should give you the gory details on my look… 5'4", 146 lbs, blonde (blonder this month than last), blue eyes, fun smile. Time to set my DVR for the new show and catch a rerun of Gilmore. Cheers!

  6. My name is Lara Ciritci. Dancing is my passion. I'm the leader of the dance club in my school. I've practiced classical ballet for 5 years, street jazz for 2 years at the same time in Dance Academy, and a misture of salsa, tango, and Cha-Cha for a year. I've performed to a huge audience every year. I've been searching for so long to find a show that includes dancing and of course acting. I'm not the best student in my school, but the dance floor is one place I get to be a genius. Being heard is my dream because I was bullied a lot but when i would dance all those mean things that everyone bullied me about would just slip away. While I'm dancing I feel like i'm in a different world and I dont care what people say about me. So this would be a perfect opportunity for me. I've always wanted to dance in broadway and wanted to start with the best like a show like this. I could start with commercial and smaller things but I love challenge. I succeed with whatever I do and I think thats my best ability. I will put time, effort, and all my energy into what I believe because this is my dream since i was very little and a passion. Like you said, "It’s my time to be a star!", to shine and prove myself.

My mother is a Ballet instructor at my studio, so i pretty much LIVE there! I take more classes then anyone else in my studio. I love to act, sing, and most of all DANCE! TRIPLE THREAT! HAHAHAH!

  9. I'm a 23 years old female from UK. I believe I should be given a part in this movie because I believe I have what it takes. I am hard working dedicated and very ambitious. I have always wanted to becomes an actor/director/screenwriter since I was 15. I've always enjoyed drama and enjoy acting. I have a background with the Meisner technique and have been in a few plays. I believe I have what it takes to do this but I just need to be given a chance to prove that. I am a very diverse actress who can do New Yorkers accent, Southerner accent, British accent. I am able to adapt to any character I am giving and obtain in depth research in order to play the character accurately.

Dancing has always brought us together. It would be a dream come true to be an extra on "Bunheads" It would be even more amazing if my sisters were a part of it, too! I love to smile, to be true to myself, to dance, to be with my family, and to love life! It is my dream to continue to live a happy and full life. If "Bunheads" was a part of that, then…I guess I'd have to keep on smiling even more!

Every February in my dance, a lady comes from the Royal Academy of Dance, we dance for her and she gives us a medal. I am the youngest in my class to get a gold every year. I auditioned for Ballet School in New York, thinking I did horrible. But I got accepted. In my spare time, I like to hangout with my friends and play outside. I do Ballet, Cheerleading, Gymnastics, Horse-Back Riding, Soccer and Swimming. I do a acting play every once in a while. Acting and Dancing come to me naturally. I want to be chosen because, I live in a small area where all of these talented people are but never make it. People tell me I cant make it, but I say what Justin Bieber says, "Never Say Never". Its okay if I don't get chosen, but I won't give up. Thank you . I hope to hear from you soon!

    Gender: Female
    Age: 16
    Weight: 105 lb
    Height: 5"3
    Hair Color: Blonde
    Eyes Color: Green

    I have been dancing since I was 3 years old. In my 13 years of experience, I have been trained in jazz, tap, hip hop, musical theatre, modern, latin ballroom, ballet, and pointe. I also sing and participate in plays and musicals in my community.
    It is my dream to spend my life dancing and performing. It would be indescribable to be able to do what I am passionate about for an audience. Ever since I first heard about Bunheads, I have wanted with all my heard to be on the show. Not only could I dance, but the chance to work with Sutton Foster is the chance of a lifetime. Ever since I first saw her on Broadway, she has been my inspiration.
    Living in a small town, it's hard for me to get to audition or compete to show the world my talent. All I want is a chance. And, of course, I can give lots of "attitude, my friends!"
