Nice port de bras.

Watch your alignment.

Miss?

Parker. Kate Parker.

Billy's daughter.

JONATHAN:
Now the other side.

(WHISPERING) Classy.

(PIANO MUSIC PLAYING)

Kate Parker? How you doing?

Good.

All right, you're gonna be

dancing here with Mr. Webb.

Nice to meet you. You, too.

Okay, sorry. Let's stop.

One more time from the top.

Ready?

And five, six, seven, eight...

MALE STUDENT:

That is perfection.

Look at those legs.

One of the best dancers, I hear.

TOMMY:
Really?

What else you know about her?

Her?

Look at him.

Hey, nice form.

"Nice form"?

(WHISPERING)

What is she thinking?

She's already a whale.

We have one last

spot to fill for a girl.

Here are the top contenders.

Suzanne Von Stroh,

Kate Parker, Lily Green.

I just don't think that Green

has the feet or the body.

Agreed. I vote

to lose Parker, too.

I disagree.

Suzanne Von Stroh

has perfect form.

Perfectly boring.

She's a classic prima ballerina.

I see a lot of potential there.

Yeah, potential funding.

Well, unless we figure out a way

to turn this whole thing

into a reality show,

academies need funding.

You should know that

better than anyone.

The Parker girl's got

something, Jonathan.

She's got passion.

She's too raw.

She'll refine her skills

in the classroom.

She had plenty of time

to refine her skills.

And she's going to

need a scholarship.

Look, Suzanne has

excellent technique

and she might be

a superior dancer,

but how many Suzannes

do we have here?

What'll she bring to the table?

How about Sleeping Beauty?

How about Swan Lake?

How about Giselle?

How about Twyla Tharp?

Bob Fosse? Jerome Robbins?

Can't we do something that's

from the last 50 years?

Tommy.

Excuse me, sorry.

Yes!

When it gets hard

and I cannot cope

Reel myself out
