YMMV: Barbie In The Pink Shoes
- Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Tara a perfectionist prima donna, or was her early nastiness the product of nerves from her father's pressure? Her kindness towards Kristyn implies the latter.
- Awesome Art: The rotoscoping, as well as the visuals of Swan Lake, Siegfried's palace, and the Snow Queen's palace.
- Fashion-Victim Villain: Rothbart.
- Strawman Has a Point: Madame Natasha is paid to teach students ballet, which includes teaching them how to follow designated choreography. Kristen's improvisations could look like mistakes to a conservative or traditional ballet critic. Changing the steps every time would be frustrating for a director, not to mention difficult for other dancers to adapt to when she isn't dancing solo.
