Dance Academy Soundtrack – Series 1 Episode 11 – One Perfect Day


Tchaikovsky – Swan Lake – Dance of the Little Swans –

The detail that says it all: Tara is being told off AND she is the only one not dancing  in pointe shoes!



Ah, this next one:

Taco Van Hettinga – Freunde Pier – it means ‘Friend Pier’… so I presume it is either the dirge for Sammy’s pointe shoes funeral…


(sorry, three photos just because this scene is awesome!)


unlikely to be the ribbon dance music, but could it be?


Or Ethan’s original music choice?

Your guess is as good as mine…

And last but not least:

Winterpark – One Night Alone –


Tara proves her point by dancing Ethan’s choreography her way, to this track. (and I love that this happens again  as Abigail does that to his chore in Series 2 Episode 5: Showcase!)


Dance Academy Soundtrack – Series 1 Episode 9 – Heartbeat


A mix of find-able songs and made-for-purpose un-find-able ones…


Heart Beats Faster – Prince of Thieves


Lost at Sea – The Cairos – (as background music)


Casting II – Cristian Cassara – I love this music, such a shame I can’t find the track anywhere


Boundaries – Garron Leslie – same as above


Had Enough/ You Got Me Dancing- J. Worthy/ A. Tuohey/ M.Mozart

And then there should be TV trailer – Jonas Engelke…


Dance Academy Favourite Snippet: Sammy and his Dad

One of my favourite relationships in Dance Academy: Sammy and his Dad.

Series 1 Episode 5: Real Men Don’t Dance

Dad can’t tolerate that Sammy is wasting his intelligence on Dance, especially as he even struggles with the Dance aspect of his studies, and threatens to pull Sammy out of the Academy… first one.

There are romantic relationships in this show which I love, but this, this son and father relationship, that’s one that gets me straight to my heart. May it teach me a lesson as my kids grow up…


Dance Academy Soundtrack: Series 1 Episode 6 –Perfection

Ah, mostly classical this one, and not a lot of it:


So here we go:

s1e6 signets1

Tchaikovsky – Swan Lake – Op 20 – Act 2:#13 Dances of the Swans –

s1e6 Swan 2

Tara dreaming herself into Odette’s role:

Tchaikovsky – Swan Lake – Odette’s Solo (Act 2)

and this little snippet of Kat’s mum skill as a teacher:

s1e6 3s1e6 4s1e6 5

Tchaikovsky – Swan Lake – Op 20 – (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!
