YMMV / Dance Academy

  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming:
    • When Paige gives Abigail a thankyou card.
    • "Actual hug?"
    • Abigail dancing for the second years in the hip hop battle.
    • Sammy's father applauding during his performance.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Abigail
  • Iron Woobie: Ben
  • Jerkass Woobie: Abigail slides between this and full-on Woobie.
  • Les Yay: Abigail and Grace
  • The Scrappy: Tara. Her pathetic crush on Ethan, despite finding out he's a massive jerk, veers into psycho stalker territory. She keeps his schedule on her phone, and in the hopes of him noticing her, allows a rumor to spread that she's dating a company dancer... which nearly torpedoes his career.
  • Squick: Visuals of blisters being popped with needles. This series does not dodge away from the truth of dancers' feet.
  • Wangst: Tara does this. Out of all the characters, she probably has the least to bitch about. Well, at least up until the moment when Saskia breaks her back.
  • The Woobie: Tara, Sammy.
