* Lampshading: Liz says, "I want Ken Railings to walk in here right now and say, 'Pam Shortt's broken both her legs and I wanna dance with you.'" This is immediately followed by a flashback of Pam Shortt having a car accident before Ken Railings walks in and says to Liz, "Pam Shortt's broken both her legs and I wanna dance with you." This is then lampshaded by one of the children who whispers, "That was unexpected."

*** Pretty much only if you're watching DancingWithTheStars or StrictlyComeDancing...The costumes are extreme even for the period they're a nod to ([[WordOfGod Luhrmann notes]] that the ballroom world shown is a loving but UpToEleven parody of ballroom about ten or twenty years before the film is set.) Now you might see sparkles or if they're feeling really daring, some color, but for most Latin men, black on black rhinestones are about as daring as it gets.

* DodgyToupee: When Wayne and Les try to stop [[spoiler:Barry Fife]] from sabotaging the competition, his hairpiece falls forward in a pretty hilarious way, and he never really corrects it after that.

* Mockumentary: The film starts as this as a clever means of introducing the characters and the main situation.

* SecondPlaceIsForWinners: A variation; [[spoiler: Barry orders Scott and Fran disqualified at the end, but the rest of the participants and audience begin the SlowClap, showing their support for Scott and Fran over Barry. We never hear the final results of the Pan-Pacific competition, but by this time it doesn't matter; Scott and Fran achieved personal victory by dancing ''their'' way.]]

* FixingTheGame: [[spoiler: Barry planned to give the Pan-Pacific Championship to Ken and his partner no matter what Scott did. Wayne called Barry out on his duplicity, and toward the end Liz turned against Barry as well. By the end of the movie, it's clear that Scott and Fran are the future of ballroom dancing, and [[LaserGuidedKarma Barry's rep is pretty much ruined]].]]

* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Kid]]: Kylie, who doesn't get why everyone is up in arms about Scott's "crowd pleasing steps".
