Watch Backstage

Backstage is a Disney Channel drama that follows the lives of teens who are attending a performing arts school. The show takes a look into the range of feelings the students experience as they enter the school as ninth graders and attempt to make a name for themselves.

The students in the show attend Keaton School of the Arts, and have to balance the challenges of school with their other relationships and obligations. Because the school only accepts the best and most talented students, only the best singers, dancers and actors will make it to graduation.

Keaton School of the Arts students also learn how to handle their careers in a professional manner in order to prepare for the entertainment industry. Friendships are tested as some students are awarded top spots in the school, while others are not. The teachers at the school are also very strict, and expect the best from the teenagers who are privileged enough to go there.
