This was her big chance. She had waited years to get here, long hard years of effort, training and sacrifice. Everything rested on the next five minutes.
She had been surprised that it was to be outside, then overheard purely by chance about improvisation, and that was key to her success, or failure.
Swirling her skirt around her, she sprung into life as soon as the audition music started. It wasn’t exactly Swan Lake, but she intended to get the lead role of this oriental ballet production.
