* MysteriousIdentity: The Captain is a walking enigma; nothing is clear about him, not even his name or his actual profession (he's supposedly the hotel doorman, but he also hosts the dance contest). He's only a TokenBlackFriend who mysteriously and annoyingly pops up at regular intervals to act "wise" and "supportive".

* InformedAbility: Hal's dancing is treated as awe-inspiring by Ken and he becomes Ken and Shotsy's mentor, plus his actor David Winters was a respectable choreographer, but the dancing he shows on screen, which looks more like limb flailing, says otherwise.
