She can’t dance at all. He promises to take the lead and that everything will be okay. She stomps on his feet the whole dance. She’s beyond embarrassed.

And then, when she apologizes, he just disappears. She has no idea what set him off or why he’d be gracious and kind one minute and avoid her the next.
