* FinalExamBoss: Non-video game example; the nationals, which come at the end of each season and are usually seen as assessments of everything the girls have learned throughout the dance season.



* GrandFinale: Each season ends with Abby's team competing at nationals, which is essentially a final exam that assesses every performance you've had in the season up to that point.

* FollowTheLeader:
** Since the show's inception, two quite similar reality shows have started: ''Bring It!'', about an African-American cheerleading team, and ''Jump!'', about an African-American jump-roping team.
** See TransAtlanticEquivalent.
** Rather, a case of the leader following her student. When Mackenzie made an Instagram account for her dog Maliboo, Abby quickly followed suit by making an account for her pony named Pearl. However, the followers that Pearl had were merely a fraction of those that Maliboo had. However, Maliboo's account suffered two consecutive hackings and was ultimately deleted.

* EpicFail: Season 5 kicked off with Abby being pressured down by the weight of mama drama, shaping up the dance team, and dealing with the legal matter from her scuffle with Kelly in the previous season. So what should she do? Why, go to Los Angeles, of course, where the competition is much fiercer and requires even more work to compete against!

to:

* EpicFail: Season In one episode, Abby is so afraid of losing to studio Bleu that she decides to take Mackenzie out of the team and enter into higher age divension (expecting Studio Bleu to compete in the Junior division). Minutes before the competition, she learns that studio Bleu also moved into higher age division. If Abby left Mackenzie in the team, the girls would be safe in Junior division instead of losing to studio Bleu. Moms are understandably furious while Abby blames...Mackenzie [[NeverMyFault (claiming she took out Mackenzie because of her crying during the lessons.)]]

** The girls were a lot more conceited-sounding as well.



* TokenMinority: According to her mom, Nia.

* TokenMinority: According to her mom, Nia.Nia, especially since she's been put in a lot of ethnic dances.
