Wesley Yarbor counted out the steps, crossing one foot one over the other. As he glided across the floor, the chalkboard and empty bookshelves transformed into a dance studio.

A smile teased at the edges of his mouth until it burst through.
“People make dance seem hard,” he said. “Dance is nothing but steps that you put a little spin on.”
