Rumba at the Dance Studio by Wilda Morris The over-weight grey-haired woman and tall balding man have mastered the basic box step and simple rocks, but he canít remember to lower his hand to guide her into the walk-across. She forgets whether the step where they angle their feet counts as one of the three, turns too late. Her feet resist internalizing the cross-over. She steps too far, throws herself off balance. He doesnít remember how to bring her back into the basic box when itís time. Their rumba is totally graceless except for the grace of trying and trying and trying again.
