Characters

  • CECE PARKER-JONES

    Cece is a funny, vivacious, powerful dynamo. Born and raised in a small town just outside of Boston, Cece’s spent her whole life dreaming about ballet, unaware of her magical identity. Cece is a Wizen, a witch with untapped potential, she slowly discovers how to juggle dance and magic.

  • SIMONE SOUTER

    Simone’s a fiercely competitive dancer who keeps herself grounded with her spiritual practices, which include consulting with her trusted Tarot cards. She is Cece’s instant BFF and Mia’s main rivalry.  A lover of the environment, Simone repurposes her vintage clothing with her growing sewing skills.

  • MIA BANKS

    Smart as a whip, a killer dancer, and lover of rules. A type-A personality to her core who feels safest when things are meticulously planned, in hard-copy, and laminated. While she may come off as cold, she is just misunderstood, making it harder to make friends with her competitors.

  • JACK RYDER

    He has a photographic memory and can memorize any choreography after only seeing it once, making his roommate Benoit totally insane. Jack is used to being the best, so he’s challenged when an injury forces him to take a back seat, giving Benoit a chance to shine.

  • BENOIT DUCASSE

    Born and raised in Paris, the son of a ballroom dancer who is a natural fit at the Paris Opera Ballet School. A rigorous student with a clear vision to make company, he is willing to work twice as hard as Jack to make his dream come true.

  • FINN CASSIDY

    Finn’s not only a brainiac that speaks multiple languages fluently; he is an excellent dancer too. Not one to be put in a box, Finn breaks the traditional gender roles in ballet. He is also the host of his own podcast, “Jeté Minute”, where he chronicles all things dance at the Paris Opera Ballet School.
