The Butterfly Ball is coming up and all the dancers are twirling, flying and spinning in preparation for the show. However, Rosa is disappointed when she receives the part of a glow worm, instead of a butterfly. As the youngest and smallest, she is insecure about her ability as a dancer, but her grandma helps her feel better. Her friend Rosa also comforts her by catching a glow worm for her. Finally, Rosa realizes how important her role is as she begins and ends the show and the audience cheers.
