Rainbow-colored image of a man and woman in ballet costumes performing a ballet move; when viewer stands to left of hologram, the man is bent over, legs spread apart, holding the woman in an upside-down position by balancing her between his body and left arm, while the woman has her arms folded inward; both have their eyes closed and heads down; when viewer moves to right, both open their eyes and raise their heads, looking and smiling at viewer, while spreading their arms out and away from their bodies.
