This is a black vinyl tote bag. On the front of the bag, there is an orange square that frames the words in all caps: AIR BETWEEN MY VERTEBRAE. Right underneath the words, there is an image of part of a curving spine. The square, words, and spine detail are made of an orange, flock vinyl material that has a soft velvet, fuzzy feel.

About Saturday Introductory Level Class: This class is suitable for people with no prior knowledge of ballet. This repeating series of eight classes introduces students to the most common ballet vocabulary that they would need to know in order to participate in Open Level Dark Room Ballet Class. The class introduces students to necessary anatomical concepts like turnout, torso stability, foot sensitivity and mobility, sightless balancing, and the use of a taped floor for orientation.

She is wearing a simple white dress with her shoulders exposed and a fluffy white headdress perched on her forehead and wrapping down her braid.
