If you haven’t watched Dance Academy, I truly question your taste in television. My Senior Writer, Sarah and I wrote a love letter to Dance Academy last year (check it out here) and we are legitimately waiting with baited breath for season three.

It is heartwarming, heartbreaking and full of all the teen drama your heart desires. I had the chance to chat with my favorite Dance Academy cast member, Dena Kaplan, who plays Abigail. Abigail is the resident perfectionist, troublemaker, and thorn in everyone’s side. At the end of last season (and don’t keep reading if you have not watched season two, seriously stop right now), it looked like Abigail and Sammy were going to reconcile. And then we all tragically lost Sammy (moment of silence, DA fans), and everyone’s life was turned around. Dena talked about this incredible loss, playing the bitch while keeping her grounded, growing up in the real life version of Dance Academy and lots more.
