Kelly agrees to go to the dance audition as a lark.  She doesn't really want to get her hopes up.  After all, just about every hopeful dancer in LA is going to try out for the new act.  Without her friend Tito, Kelly would never have the nerve to go.  When she doesn't get chosen, she is a bit hurt but not too surprised.  It was just a dream.  It couldn't really happen.  But then the email comes.  Eileen Wang has seen the audition tape and would like Kelly to audition for Darcy Barnes' summer tour!  Darcy is Kelly's idol and she knows all her dance routines!  When she gets the job she is ecstatic.  And it doesn't hurt that it pays $40,000 for the summer!  But will it be all that Kelly thinks it will?  Or if life in the fast lane very different than we mere mortals imagine?
