My dance school has a float in our town’s Fourth of July parade every year, and I was so excited when I got selected to be part of the special dance. The rehearsals did conflict with a few of my soccer games, but my teacher said it’d be okay as long as I practiced the steps at home. Well, I should’ve practiced harder! We were right in the middle of the routine, and I twirled right when the rest of the class went left. My mess-up caused a whole row of dancers to topple over. I heard the whole town go silent as they watched!
