Synopsis: Briana longs to dance with flowing, elf-like grace but her ballet lessons are not going well and she seems to be constantly at war with her own feet. Then one night she catches a glimpse of a strange, gliding light down at the lake. It looks like magic and indeed she soon discovers someone who can dance more beautifully than any human she has ever seen. He's an inspiration but there's a catch - he's apt to disappear in less than a flash.
