Dancers prepare backstage. The Choreographer enters the studio. He flicks on the lights, sits down next to a piano, and begins preparing his new ballet. Simple steps turn into choreography, and he begins imagining what this new ballet could become.
The Pianist arrives for the company’s warm-up. He mischievously mimics the choreographer’s musings as the dancers arrive and class begins. However, the hard work is interrupted as everyone’s attention turns to the arrival of the Star Ballerina.
