Corrected entry: In the scene where Jodie, Maureen and Eva are chasing Emily down the steps they each call out 'Emily,' but someone says Emily an extra time but none of the girls' mouths move.
Corrected entry: Eva took Maureen's place in the ballet but Eva had an original part in the same ballet with a different partner. Who took Eva's place and fit into her costume and knew the moves and why didn't anyone notice?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Jody goes to another dance studio to take a jazz class she asks if they have a 5:30 class, then after the class when she goes outside it is dusk and Cooper asks her if she has had dinner, all of which imply that it is early evening. Yet at the beginning of the class when all the dancers are greeting each other, a dancer in a turquoise leotard says to another dancer "good morning".
Corrected entry: How did Eva learn Maureen's dance so fast? The exchange must have been decided the same day or late the night before and it was no easy dance. Even if she had paid attention at rehearsal it would be very hard to learn that kind of dance in one day.
Corrected entry: In Cooper's workshop at the end of the film, in the second part (the "sidewalk") Jodie's hair is loose around her shoulders, she's wearing minimal makeup and her pointe shoes are light pink. In the next part of the dance, the pause when the curtain is down could only have been a minute or two at best, yet her hair is in elaborate braided cornrows and piled up on her head. She also has dramatic stage makeup on and bright red pointe shoes. The whole transfomation would have taken at least an hour.
Corrected entry: After Jodie and Eva have been accepted to ABA and they're in their first class, Eva is approached by the instructor and told that there's a dress code, no gum, and that she needed to get her hair out of her face. Eva puts her bangs behind her ears. In the next scene, only a couple minutes later, her hair is all pulled back neat and tidy with no bangs. How did she get her hair pulled back so quickly?
Corrected entry: When Jodie takes the 5:30 dance class, after the warm up etc all the dancers do their little dance routine. If this was Jodie's first and only class there how would she know all the moves? (00:45:00)
Corrected entry: At the very beginning of the dance where Jody, Charlie, and Cooper dance to "Canned Heat" (the red one), Jody's toe shoes are light pink, the regular color of toe shoes. But if you look at her feet in the next shot when she is pushing Charlie and Cooper away, her toe shoes are bright red. (01:40:37)
