I think she's mischievous and curious, and willful. She's not a submissive little girlfriend; she can think for herself and investigate things on her own. One thing you might aim for -- although this is much easier to write than it is to do -- is to try to live the role and not just act it out. Remember that Swanilda doesn't know what's in that workshop until she sees it, that neither she nor Franz know that Coppelia is a doll until they're up close. Remember that they don't know how this is going to turn out -- Franz is in real danger, Swanilda is worried about him, but can't let on, because she's only a doll.
Have fun with it!
You might want to post this same question on the Ballet Talk for Dancers forum in Cross Talk, because there might be some people there who have danced or coached the role.
