Life Inside The New York City Ballet Is Even Crazier Than You Imagined

Welcome to the New York City Ballet, where competition is cutthroat, dancing is like breathing and Sarah Jessica Parker narrates everything.

A new docudrama entitled "city.ballet." goes behind the scenes of the intense lifestyle, chock-full of toe shoes, leotards, pliés and anxiety. The 12-episode series explores the highs and lows of life on stage in five-minute segments, with the handy narration of SJP herself.

In the first episode Ballet Master in Chief Peter Martin discusses what it's like to climb up the ranks. Check it out above.
