Season 2, Episode 12
March 29, 2012
"Breaking Pointe" is the twelfth episode of season two of the Australian television series, Dance Academy. It aired on February 22, 2012 on ABC3.
Kat asks Miss Raine if she can come back to the academy, and continues pestering her until she begrudgingly relents—but tells Kat that she must repeat first year as she failed; in the meantime, Ethan assigns Abigail to train Kat for readmission as payment for choreographing her solo. Kat also tells Christian that although she may have feelings for him, she knows that he’s only pretending not to still have feelings for Tara, who is literally being pushed to the limit in practice by Saskia, who injures Tara’s back by stretching her leg in exaggerated arabesque position to reprimand her. Tara seems to find comfort for her injury from Christian, but he says he won’t be guilted into getting back together with her. Tara gets an MRI scan from a non-academy doctor, who tells her she has cracked a bone in her spine, and not to do any high-strain activities—like dancing.
