Tallulah is excited to go to dance camp and take ballet classes. She's less excited about having to take tap classes. Tallulah has been taking ballet classes for a long time and is one of the best in the class. The teacher praises her technique. But in tap class she receives several corrections from the teacher. Tallulah feels she's the worst student in tap class. Eventually Tallulah realizes that being corrected by the teacher doesn't mean she's the worst student in the class. She begins to understand that if she keeps practicing she'll get better. Tallulah looks forward to being good at both ballet and tap.
