The dancers are rehearsing even though there is one foot missing and their shoes don't match. Where is their other leg? They're not as famous as the Rockettes.
The musicians are very focused. The curtain is going up. The footlights are about to come on. The crowd is expectant and eager for the show to start. The dancers are confident. They like what they do. If they didn't they would quit!
I bet they are playing upbeat dance music, something popular for the time. Probably 1940's. It's no funeral march that's for sure!
There is a sweet smell of soaps in the air. Perhaps its a bit offensive.
The sound of the orchestra percussion instruments are creating a beat for the dancers. The performance will go well.
None of the shoes are tap or even the same type of shoe. We are only seeing one leg per person. Where's the other leg? What shoe is on the other foot? Shoes were rationed during WWII. It doesn't seem like war time.
The black shoes toward the right look "grabity" "comfordibble"!
