They said she didn’t have any.

So to learn they sent her out to stand on the bridge outside the dance studio. Dressed in her pink tutu she had to stand there and ignore the passing people and traffic.

It was very hard for her. People passed and giggled at her, they said things about her tutu that were unkind. She was feeling desperate until one man dropped a dollar at her feet. Then another a few gold coins.

By early afternoon there was a considerable pile of money at her feet.

Learning poise was paying off.
