Music begins to pulsate through the room.
First position. Grip the bar. Ankles bend. Feet stretch. Arms above our heads.
Imperfections are not allowed here.

Music blasts through the stereo.
Filled with a rhythm that everyone can see.
Plie. Sashay. Potaboray. Across the floor.

Suddenly there’s a burst of energy in the room.
Clean cut movements. A new attitude is presented.
Toes tapping, fingers snapping, head bobbing

Beads of sweat hit the ground.
