Four couples dance in what appears to be a competition. The background is purple with an orange spotlight. Polka dots of green and orange span from the top to the bottom of the work. The women are in green dresses. The men are in black tuxedos. One of the men has the number 2 on the back of his dress coat, and another has the number 5 on the back of his dress coat.
