and the original Christian heard on Tara’s CD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQ6mtOg3mj4
Last but not least, the frustrating scene where songs are actually named, but were designed for the episode, so cannot be found on the internet!
Crush theories and feminism
Sammy being, well, Sammy.
Abigail, to Christian as he practices: ‘You know, being good at HipHop is never gonna make you a better ballet dancer.’ Ouch.
Sammy admitting he has a crush on Abigail: ‘I didn’t mean for it to happen.’
Love it or Fight it
Kat being super brave. Not many would have the guts to face to such a situation like this. But Kat prefered to be hurt, on her own terms, than to live a lie. Good on her!
Ah, mostly classical this one, and not a lot of it:
So here we go:
Tchaikovsky – Swan Lake – Op 20 – Act 2:#13 Dances of the Swans – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9ubcP5B-38
Tara dreaming herself into Odette’s role:
Tchaikovsky – Swan Lake – Odette’s Solo (Act 2) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwXc2rlAobI
and this little snippet of Kat’s mum skill as a teacher:
Tchaikovsky – Swan Lake – Op 20 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYUJy2EGgdY (first part)
supposedly we should have this track also somewhere, but I can’t spot where…
Tchaikovsky – Swan Lake – Op 20- Act 3 pas de deux –
As for ‘Subway Out’ and Cassara’s ‘Don’t Play with My Heart’, these were once again written for the show, but these ones are named here, and I cannot spot where they might actually appear at all…
Another frustrating one then!
Oh don’t get me started on this episode’s name!!! So wrong, so very wrong!
But back to soundtrack, and to be honest, it is equally shocking:
The theme tune and one unfindable song… Great… When there is some great pieces of music!
the piano tango-like pirouettes track.
and yes, that one when Sammy get himself sick all over Abigail’s ankle!
Christian ‘turning in’ and no liking the ‘correction’ very much,
and Patrick showing how it is done!
I so wish I could have the names of these tracks!
And of course I have no idea where Glorious Days might be. Could it be this?
I am one frustrated soundtrack searcher!

Just one of the reasons I started writing a series 3 fan fiction.
Yes, Christian, you are going to be an amazing teacher!
Dance Academy Series 1 Episode 8.
I love the reluctant friendship between these two, especially after what we learn in Series 2 Episode 25 ‘You and me? We will never be mates.’ And see where they got in the end.
And I LOVE Sammy’s sassy come back!
Abigail discovering the fun of playing video games.
That girl really needed to step out of her ‘comfort’ ballet zone, didn’t she?
