When I asked some of the children—Lupe, Ali, Elizabeth, Juan, Frances and Alonna—why they were there, all had a variety of reasons, but it took Frances to simplify it. "Dancing," she said, "makes me happy." Total and utter bliss is a rare human condition, too often limited to moments in childhood that begin to fade when the world beyond dancing opens to a growing up fraught with peril.
