A questioning of stereotypes related to girls; ballerinas and girlish identity contrasting with reality; an ambiguous environment reflecting the fears and anxiety parents may have about their children, especially girls, growing up; the dog or wolf signifies the ambivalence present in the girl's environment (it may be a protector or a predator--it is difficult to say for sure.)
