“SO SHARP”

There’s a new force to be reckoned with on the dance floor and his name says it all! Todd Sharp is the coach of the University of Louisville Dance Team, the Ladybirds, and he’s driven, precise and over-the-top. The team has over 15 national championships under their belt and with this year's nationals fast approaching, Todd will push the ladies to another victory, even if it kills him.

  • Airs Tuesday, September 19 at 11:02PM-12:02AM (ET/PT)
  • The 10 weeks of blood, sweat, and tears has all been leading up to one thing, Nationals.

The pressure proves to be almost unbearable when they struggle with their formations the day before the competition, forcing Todd to come down hard on the team. Kayla lets the stress get to her head and worries about being able to execute her moves in the Jazz section. With their reputation on the line and two titles at stake, can the Ladybirds come together as a team and make history?
