In a dance studio space seven young dancers sprawl out on the floor, laughing and joking. They perform a warm-up routine with long stretches as their instructor, Lou Moulder, calls out directions. Even though there are only eight people in the room, they take up the whole space. Moulder joins the students on the floor at the front of the room by the mirror.
“I feel it,” one of the girls says dramatically as she leans into a stretch.
“Yeah? You should,” Moulder responds. The whole class giggles.
