Silver – stanza 16.3

When Courlain became involved in the Gala
Having identified Allison and ponied up cash
He didn’t dare approach her, for he didn’t know
If she would recognize him, so he contacted
Tasha and asked her to intervene, to choreograph
To speak with Allison and see if Silver lurked
Beneath the young woman’s sudden rise to fame
Or if Silver, alert and aware, was deliberately
Taking steps to change dance forever again
Tasha stopped by the studio where Allison danced
To watch some rehearsals, get an idea of what
To expect, she found less than she dreamed possible
A local company and school, with a few shows
Apart from the full complement of recitals
Barely teaching ballet, much less real dancers
Could real talent emerge from such a place?
Tasha found it unlikely, they had a basic understanding
Of the first levels of training, a young ballet dancer
A child, requires to begin the journey to true dance
But beyond those basics, the teachers had little
To share, they had been professional dancers
But unaccomplished beyond enough to get paid
They didn’t have the skills themselves to raise
Allison to the level she apparently achieved
Tasha watched her dance carefully, noting
The impossibilities until she was convinced
After rehearsal concluded she took Allison
Aside, to compliment her dancing and ask
Her to join the Gala and say the word “Silver”
