In this interlude, the author shares her dancing experience with two different partners and how she connects with them. The first is Dean, a single, white, thirty-something astrophysicist, whom she describes as a wonderful smooth dancer and having a good quickstep. Ballroom dance is Dean's way of making a connection, his way of experiencing joy. Her second partner is Sam, a former boyfriend and a tennis coach who taught her author how to play tennis while she taught him how to dance. The author also talks about Toby, the bartender for that night, who takes a break to watch the hustle dancers with her; David, also a bartender; and Genevieve, who manages the banquet aspect of the business at the Regent Ballroom and Banquet Center. Finally, she reflects on her Nightclub two-step with Dean, who dances her afterwards to the water fountain where they began.
