Lit in hot pink, Jimmy Helms moves his arm in silhouette. In black-and-white, Helms, Jimmy Chambers, George and William dance in a studio.

Lit in cobalt, three young women cross their arms during the routine. Helms, Chambers, George and William perform against a white background. Lit in lime green, a second twentysomething woman pirouettes by a brick wall in the studio. Two twentysomething woman sit next to each other. Wearing a black, embellished t-shirt dress, a twentysomething woman smiles as she turns. A third twentysomething woman sits on a mat. Jimmy puts his thumbs to his lips as he stands.
