Stream It Or Skip It: "Dive Club" On Netflix, An Aussie Teen Show About A Group Of Diving Friends, And Why One Of Them Disappeared


As any streaming junkie knows, it is nearly impossible to keep up with all the content on Netflix. That’s why you come to sites like this one so that us TV experts can tell you what shows you definitely shouldn’t be sleeping on. My current favorite show on Netflix, and soon to be your favorite show too, is a little gem about a dance school in the UK:Baby Ballroom.

What Is The Show About?

Warren Bullock and his wife Jane are former ballroom dance champions. They have devoted their lives to teaching this art that they love at their dance school, Zig Zag Dance Factory in Wolverhampton, England. The show focuses on the many couples that Warren and Jane train – including two of their three triplet daughters (the third triplet is just really into math and it is so funny).

For these mini dancers, who range in age from 6 years old to 17, ballroom is life. They train every day, compete every week, spend thousands on coaches and costumes and sometimes even partners! Because ballroom boys are such a hot commodity, it is not uncommon for families to fly a young boy in from Eastern Europe (as young as 11 or 12 years old!) to live in their homes and train with their daughters. It is this dedication that breeds national and international champions – of which Zig Zag has quite a few.

What separates this show from a lot of other similar ones is that the kids actually LOVE it. The parents are pushy but these performers are even more competitive. And they are good at what they do. Like really good. So not only do you get an inside look at the weird and wonderful subculture of English youth ballroom dancing, you also get to see some pretty incredible dance numbers.

Who Will Like This Show?

Washed up theater kids, anglophiles, wanna-be dance moms, bored housewives, this show is honestly such a crowd pleaser. Start watching because you love kids competition shows but stay for the glitz, glam, glitter, and drama. Oh, and the cast! From overly competitive child champions to truly lovable dance teachers, unlike inDance Moms,you will actually love everyone on the show. I of course have my favorites (Andrei and Mia forever) and there are of course some standouts (Olivia could win at Blackpool dancing with a broom) but all the characters make this show a joy to watch – and impossible to stop watching.

There are currently 2 seasons available on Netflix, and I will be waltzing around my living room until we get a third!
