Chris Detrick | The Salt Lake Tribune Ballet West dancers Rex Tilton, Elizabeth McGrath, Kathleen Martin and Lindsay Duerfeldt are filmed by a BBC film crew for the show "Breaking Pointe" Tuesday April 3, 2012.

"Breaking Pointe," the reality series set inside Salt Lake City's own Ballet West, will premiere on Thursday, May 31, at 7 p.m., The CW just announced.

The network describes the still-in-production "Breaking Pointe" as a show that "goes behind the stage curtain for an intense, unfiltered look at one of the most competitive ballet companies in the country, Ballet West, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Beneath the beauty and glamour of the dance and costumes is a gritty dog-eat-dog world of extreme athleticism, focus, dedication, passion, pressure and, of course, the hunt for the unattainable...perfection."

The CW, which is seen in Utah on KUCW-Ch. 30, will also premiere "The Catalina," a reality show about the employees and guest at a "rocking Miami Hotel," on Tuesday, May 29, at 7 p.m.

Additionally, weekly repeats of the two shows will air back-to-back on Mondays at 7 p.m. ("Breaking Pointe") and 8 p.m. ("The Catalina") beginning June 4.
