The Day After Part 2: The Dance Studio
It's about 11am on Sunday. Tanisha is in the studio with one of her instructors, Maurice. For the most part it is a family day. She attends early rise service with her parents, and later in the evening she will have dinner at their house. Her sisters try to make it as often as they can.
"You did well. I just need you to work more on your extensions." (Maurice)
Maurice leaves and Tanisha starts preparing for the upcoming class she will teach.
Chandra, who normally teaches the class with her, stops by to make sure everything's okay.
"Hey Nish. Sorry to cut out on you . Do you think you will be okay?" (Chandra)
"You know if I had an audition, I would cut out on you, too. Good luck! Break a leg." (Tanisha)
By noon, the dance studio is filled with lots of little girls and their parents.
The older girls know they need to stretch.
Most of the parents will stay in the lobby, while some choose to leave and come back when the hour is up.
There's Shannon's mom. Wow, I didn't know she had two more kids. Girlfriend has been busy.
"Alright ladies, let's take our places."
"Well there's my niece. Come on in."
Ron and Robin are running a little late this morning. That's Ron from Hotel Monaco. He typically has Sundays off.
"Awww honey. Don't you miss dancing?" (Ron)
"Well hello there, cutie." (Mrs. Hart)
"I didn't know you and Adele were sisters. It's a small word." (Toni)
Speaking of Adele.... Scene from a future Day After post.
