* EsotericHappyEnding: Averted. It's actually left ambiguous as to whether or not Alex gets in - although anyone who's worked in ballet can tell you [[RealityEnsues she most likely didn't]] - at least if she was trying out for the ballet program (as catchy as Alex's audition was, [[HardWorkFallacy she didn't show any knowledge of actual ballet techniques]]). However, the emphasis is actually placed on Alex finally gathering her courage and ''doing'' the audition, rather than the results, which are not explicitly shown.

* CriticalDissonance: Critics, for the most part, didn't care for the movie when it came out (Creator/RogerEbert especially ripped it a new one). However, it was a box-office success and is fondly remembered by many people today as an 80s classic.
