Two dancers are moving on the floor of a studio, and you can see their reflections shimmer across the floor. The dancer on the left is further back and has lifted herself into a backwards bridge, holding herself up with one arm and the other arm partially covering her face. The other dancer is closer to the camera, sitting on his shins while putting his hands on the ground in front of him and looking down.
