The Bunheads could have staged a revolt when news came that the beloved ABC Family show was not returning for a second season. We would have been right there with them.

But the ballerinas chose to bow out elegantly — with an emotional dance choreographed by Marguerite Derricks and directed by showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino. Featuring stars Julia Goldani Telles (Sasha), Bailey Buntain (Ginny), and Jeanine Mason (Cozette), the dance references various numbers seen throughout season one, including Sasha’s incredible “Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” routine. Kaitlyn Jenkins, who played Boo, does not appear in the video due to an injury. Also absent are Sutton Foster, Kelly Bishop, and Emma Dumont.

Check out their final, bittersweet goodbye below.

Buzzfeed premiered the video on Monday.
