Visible crew/equipment: About half way through the movie, Sara and Derek are at Sara's apartment and she tells him that her father has a good stereo system. When she turns it on, you can see the reflection of the pole that holds the boom mic in a framed picture of a woman's face just to the upper right of her head. (01:23:20)

Trivia: The woman who choreographed the dance scenes in the movie is also the choreographer for the Backstreet Boys. She uses a lot of "Backstreet style" dance moves in the movie, especially during Sara's second audition for Julliard. The dance moves she does with the chair are the same moves the Backstreet Boys use in their video for "As Long As You Love Me".

More trivia for Save the Last Dance

Question: The first time Sarah goes out clubbing with Chenille, they run into some other girls from their school. One of them is Nikki, who gets mean and says that she's 'not walking on eggshells just because someone brought the Brady Bunch to the Negro club'. Chenille gets offended and yells "Nikki, you did not just call me a Negro." How is the term Negro offensive? Or were they just not allowed to say n*gg*r in this movie? (Perhaps to preserve the rating?) Someone please help - this has been driving me nuts.

Answer: Negro was the PC term in the 60's. While by no means vulgar, it has mostly fallen out of use and some people are offended by it.
