Quotation1 Dancing my way into my Happily Ever After! Quotation2
Minuette Dancer
Minuette Dancer is a 2015-introduced and all-around character. She is the daughter of the youngest princess from the Brothers Grimm tale The 12 Dancing Princesses. A bright and energetic young princess, Minuette looks forward to her destiny and all the dancing she will get to do! In the destiny conflict, Minuette sides with the Royals as she is content with her Happily Ever After. However, she isn't opposed to the Rebel ideal either, as she believes that all fairytales should be able to dance to the beat of their own drum.

Portrayal Edit

In English, Minuette Dancer is voiced by Mandy Moore.

Minuette's live-action portrayal would be played by Katherine McNamara.

Character Edit

PersonalityEdit

Minuette is a sweet and charming young girl. She seems to care for dancing more than anything else and can be quite airheaded and ditzy from time to time, the opposite of her mother who was the only princess who noticed small details in her story. Despite this, Minuette looks forward to her destiny, mainly for all the dancing she'll do. However, she does sympathize with the Rebel cause, even if she's not a Rebel herself since she believes that all fairytales should be able to dance to their own beat. When she's not off somewhere dancing, she can be found shopping for shoes, since she has a bad habit of wearing out her shoes extremely quickly. This is because she is often sneaking out during the night to dance, gaining both approval and disapproval all at once from Headmaster Grimm. On one hand, she's just fulfilling her destiny, but on the other, there's a pretty strict rule that no student is allowed to roam the grounds at night. This has lead her to get into plenty of trouble from Headmaster Grimm, which is why she's so afraid of him now.

She is usually quite sociable and talkative, easy to make friends with and hard to hate. Minuette is very expressive and she has a habit of talking with her hands, especially if she's feeling rather emotional. She can be described as being somewhat of a stereotypical girly-girl as she enjoys 'girly' things such as gossip, shopping, and cute princes. And everyone already knows her love for boy bands such as One Reflection and 5 Chapters of Summer[1]. But there's nothing that Minuette loves more than dancing. We're talking about a girl who named her twelve pet goldfish after dance styles. However, her love for dancing can also be her downfall, as she can be an extreme perfectionist, and there have been times where she's pushed herself far past her physical limits in order to get something up to her standards. Despite her fierce love for dance, Minuette has admitted that dance is much harder than one would think it to be.

Minuette has the energy of a dancer, which can be shown through her bubbly attitude. Not only does she get excited easily, but Minuette can be distracted easily as well. Her attention span lasts about as long as her pet goldfish do. The only time she really puts her everything into focusing on something is when she dances, and that's about as far as her attention span goes. Because of this, she can seem flighty and naive. But she'd never leave a friend hanging! Having been raised as a single child, by herself, for so many years, Minuette has craved social interaction with fairytales her own age. And since having eleven sisters was such an important part in her mother's story, Minuette likes to consider her friends as her "family". Overall, Minuette is a lively and sweet princess, even if she can be a bit of a hardcore dancing addict.

Hobbies & Interests Edit

Dancing Edit

Minuette's obvious main hobby is dancing. Whether it is classical ballet, ballroom dancing, or hip-hop and contemporary, Minuette loves them all. She has been dancing ever since she was a child, and her parents taught her in their underground castle from their story. Just like in her story, Minuette has a habit of sneaking out in the middle of the night and dancing in the Enchanted Forest. It is not only fun for her, but it's an outlet for her emotions and thoughts as well.

Friends Edit

She also enjoys making friends. She grew up a single child by herself, starved for social interaction with peers her own age. Although she had her dancing, she didn't have any friends. When she transferred to Ever After High, she had a plethora of friends who all made her so happy - even happier than she ever felt when she danced, which is saying something! Any time Minuette sees a person by themselves or looking down, she always takes it upon herself to get to know that person. After all, strangers are just friends you haven't met yet.

Shopping Edit

Since she's always wearing out her shoes from dancing so much, she is almost constantly visiting Ashlynn Ella's Glass Slipper boutique. Over time, she's gotten to know Ashlynn so well that the daughter of Cinderella likes to joke that Minuette "buys even more shoes than she does". Minuette has an entire closet dedicated to shoes, and then another closet dedicated to all the shoes she'd worn out throughout the years.

Poetry Edit

Minuette, believe it or not, enjoys poetry. Although she's not nearly patient enough to sit down and read novels upon novels, she does have a special fondness for poetry. She says that she likes the beats and rhythms of poetry, as it sort of reminds her of words dancing on a page. She especially enjoys reading her cousin Pirouette's poetry.

Appearance Edit

Minuette Dancer is a cute girl with pale cream skin, long curly strawberry blonde hair with lavender streaks, and bright blue eyes. She wears light pink makeup. She is often seen wearing ballerina-esque dresses as well as ballet shoes. Her favorite colors are ballet shoe pink, lavender, and princess gold, colors that she is often integrating into her outfits.

Fairy Tale Edit

How the Story Goes Edit

The 12 Dancing Princesses

How Minuette Fits Into ItEdit

Minuette, being the daughter of the youngest princess, is destined to be the only one out of all of her eleven companions to notice something amiss during the three nights the old soldier spied on them. Minuette looks forward to her story, mostly because of all the dancing she'll get to do. Plus, it means that she'll be living with her 11 cousins and dancing with them every night. What's not to love about that destiny?

View on Destiny Edit

Minuette is definitely a Royal, through and through. She loves her destiny, she wouldn't change it for the world, and she can't wait until her Once Upon a Time starts. However, Minuette also happens to support the Rebel cause, firmly believing that all fairytales should be able to dance to the beat of their own drum. However, she still considers herself to be a Royal and not a Roybel because she is in full support for her own destiny and finds nothing wrong with it.

Relationships Edit

FamilyEdit

Lavolta Dancer Edit

Minuette's mother is the Twelfth Dancing Princess. Minuette and her mother are very close, as her mother is the one who pays for all of her shoes. Minuette describes her mother as being very kind and romantic, and cares very deeply for her loved ones. Her mother and father were the ones who first taught her how to dance[2], and they are partly the reason why dancing is so precious to her. It was her mother's idea to home-school her when Minuette was younger, so that she could focus on her dancing. However, when Minuette expressed her loneliness and her need to interact with fairytales her own age, her mother, at first, was adamant about home-schooling her. However, she eventually yielded and allowed Minuette to transfer to Ever After High[1].

Galliard Dancer Edit

Minuette's father, one of the princes from the underground castle. According to Minuette, her father is stuck in a "mid-chapter crises" and is still caught sneaking out at night to dance[2]. He likes to act younger than he truly is. Because of this, him and Minuette get along quite well, even though sometimes whenever he uses a modern teen slang to seem "cool", it tends to embarrass Minuette beyond comprehension. When Minuette expressed her desire to transfer to Ever After High, Galliard was extremely supportive of her choice. Unlike most royal parents, Galliard is very laidback and open-minded about the destiny conflict, much more so than his wife.

Cousins Edit

Minuette has eleven cousins who will serve as the other dancing princesses in her story, including Abelia Knight, daughter of the First Dancing Princess, Brenda Dancer, daughter of the Second, Carmen Worn, daughter of the Third, Daniella Adagio, daughter of the Fourth, Prinscilla Crowne, daughter of the Seventh, Pavanine Dancer, daughter of the Ninth, Sarah Dance, daughter of the Tenth, and Pirouette Dancer, daughter of the Eleventh. Although she is very excited about fulfilling her destiny with all of her cousins, she admits to forgetting their names sometimes since there is so many of them[2].

Friends Edit

Quotation1 What's better than dancing? Friends! Quotation2

Due to her naturally friendly and outgoing nature, Minuette has managed to befriend plenty of fairytales during her time at Ever After High. Normally, she can be seen hanging around various other Royals, such as Holly O'Hair and Duchess Swan, although her bubbly personality lets her get along with most fairytales, including those who are more rebelliously inclined to their stories. Minuette loves making new friends, so don't be surprised if she approaches you one day!

Ticktania Tockman Edit

Minuette is particularly close to Ticktania Tockman and considers her to be her best friend forever after, the two sharing a relationship that is similar to that of a Sherlock-and-Watson sort of vibe[3]. The two met during lunch one day and they clicked almost immediately. The two can be quite different in personality sometimes, but they still manage to get along perfectly fine and they work well together whenever they become faux detectives. They tend to complement each other well, seeing as how they make up what the other is lacking. Minuette views Ticktania as a sister, and would do pretty much anything for her if she had to.

Cygmund "Ziggy" Frederick Edit

Having been dance partners for a while now, Minuette is good friends with the future Prince Siegfried. She likes to think they're close friends, almost like siblings sometimes. Minuette respects him as a dancer, and he is pretty much the first person she'd go to for dancing tips or advice. Ziggy also happens to be her VP in the Once Upon a Dance Club[4], and the two often come up with ideas for the club whenever they can. He is also one of the only people who she will gush to about her love for dancing, as he shares the same interest in it as her. According to Minuette, she has decided that he's kind of cute in a One Reflection kind of way[5], but don't let him know that.

Percy Boots Edit

Who would have guessed that the son of Puss in Boots would love dancing and shoe shopping as much as the daughter of the 12th Dancing Princess does? Well, it's true! Minuette has managed to find a friend with Percy Boots, a fellow Royal who not only shares her passion for dance and shoes, but sneaking out at night as well! Although they may seem like an odd pair to be seen together, Percy is always able to make Minuette laugh. Plus, this princess is so airheaded that any of his flirtations go right over her strawberry blonde-locked head. As per her custom with befriending a guy, she's decided to deem him cute in a EHEXO (yes, my awful try at punning Korean boy group EXO) kind of way.

Duchess Swan Edit

Although the two had a very rough first meeting, Minuette and Duchess eventually became close friends after Minuette challenged the Swan Princess to a dance off[1]. After that, Duchess reluctantly befriended Minuette and the two are usually seen dancing together near the Enchanted Lake. Minuette is able to brush off most of Duchess's witchy comments because she's so naive and sweet, allowing her to stay close to Duchess without getting annoyed or angry at her. However, because of this, Duchess can easily manipulate Minuette into doing all sorts of crazy stuff, like when she convinced Minuette to help her out with getting revenge on Apple White and Raven Queen after Legacy Day[6]. Despite this, Minuette stays a loyal friend.

Other Friends Edit

She is also good friends with Alexandra Wonderland, Golden Eyes, and Marianne Fiske, all of whom she loves giving dance tips to. She has also struck up a friendship with Aidelaide Cordonnier, the daughter of The Shoemaker, as well as Pioretta Paper, daughter of the Paper Ballerina, who shares her love of dancing. She is close to her cousin, daughter of the second Dancing Princess, Brenda Dancer.

Quotation1 ... As long as those friends will dance with you! Quotation2

Pet Edit

Foxtrot, Jitterbug, Waltz, Charleston, Boogie, Samba, Jive, Mambo, Tap, Ballet, Tango, and Swing are Minuette's twelve goldfish - fish literally made out of gold. They are all named after styles of dancing. Minuette seems to care deeply for her 12 goldfish, since she can point them all out individually by name, even though they are all identical.

Romance Edit

Quotation1 Dancing is my one true love! Quotation2
Minuette considers dancing to be her "one true love" but she's not opposed to finding a prince who is willing to dance with her forever after. She has a, more or less, complicated relationship with Axel Wolf, although the two are not officially dating[7]. She is uncertain whether or not she wants to pursue a romantic relationship at the moment.
