What shocked me the most was that Rebecca, of all of the dancers, didn't get a call right from the finals. I was convinced she would get a medal and a scholarship due to how much they talked positively about her form and body. She practiced so much and put so much effort for so many years, it seemed so odd to me that she didn't get a mention.
Even after not receiving anything, it didn't seem to deter her, because she later got the scholarship she was looking for. Her instructor made a note of saying that it was hard to find work in that line, since it was becoming outdated and many dancers weren't needed. "That said, you have to follow your dreams." I find that very important. It doesn't matter how many there are out there, that shouldn't steer you away. You should follow those dreams regardless of who's doing what. If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life. They worked hard and made it to the finals by just doing what they loved to do.
That's the most important thing to take away from this movie, in my opinion.
