"Self Sabotage" is the eleventh episode of season two of the Australian television series, Dance Academy. It aired on February 22, 2012 on ABC3.
Miss Raine introduces Sammy to his tutor—talented, opinionated and uninterested third-year Ollie. Ollie is initially unimpressed by Sammy, telling him to buy him food and not paying attention while Sammy tries to receive constructive criticism. However, after Sammy analyses him, Ollie decides to take Sammy on as a serious protégé. Grace convinces Tara to film her dancing for Saskia, also managing to capture Saskia harshly criticising Tara’s performance, who tells her, “You’re never going to make it.” Grace later convinces Tara to upload it online, where it becomes a viral hit overnight, and comes to the attention of Miss Raine; Tara apologises to Saskia, but defies Saskia’s past criticism of her Red Shoes performance by asking Miss Raine if she can perform it at the Prix de Fonteyn. Kat continues practicing for the Moulin Rouge, but arrives late and unprepared. Despite being told she is talented but just needs to work at it, she is let go.
