Dancers are spaced out in a large studio, each doing different movement from one another. The photo focuses on a dancer on the floor facing away from the camera. Their left leg is stretched out in front of them while their right leg is tucked in close to their hip. They are leaning forward over the straight leg. Behind them on the right another dancer props themselves up from the ground and kicks one of their legs in the air. There is a bubblegum pink tint over the photo.
