The film implies that NOT anyone can make it, at least not fairly or with reasonable ease, and society is in fact quite class conscious and tries to keep people in their class. The Puerto Rican couple clearly won the dance contest -- Tony knew it, and refuses the trophy for that reason -- but were considered the underclass in that microcosm of the dance club, the one place where Tony was in the upper class, so he was awarded the trophy.
