naive girl (also named Sawyer) comes to New York; gets the dancing lead in a big show; falls in love with her costar

Mentioned in a story on dance classes as a movie that has inspired people of all ages to start dancing.
Referenced by Poppy to Annabel throughout the film in regards what it takes to be the lead star of their ballet troupe and how her weight and lack of talent prevents her from as much.
