Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a female clown with green hair tied in two tight, bulky buns, with a light orange fascinator with red ribbons resting on the left side of her hair. She wears a frilly costume, which consists of a large, red frilly cuff with a large golden ribbon in the center of the cuff, dark green corset-like section with golden vertical lines, large red sleeves with golden lines twisted to bulky portions and with golden beads in the wrist cuffs, and a short red rah-rah skirt with five short layers, each having a multitude of small cuts shaped like flowers. She also wears a pair of bright orange leggings with black lace-tied sharp-toed boots. Her left eye is painted with a red heart. She wears a purple glove and has a green faded outline.
The routine takes place at a carnival at night. There is a long fence with curvy lining consistently seen behind the amusement park rides and attractions. Stars twinkle in the sky, and a row of dark trees can be seen in the far background.
During the verses, there is a large Big Top circus tent striped in red and white. Three red and white hot air balloons float in the sky. The ground is paved with solid, dark tiles with some spots reflecting the light. A red carpet walkway is rolled into a big, circular entrance to the tent. A small, red sign near the entrance reads "CIRCUS," and features small, glowing bulbs and three light-up stars. These bulbs also circle many layers of the tent. The entrance is lined with an intricate, gold trim. The rim of the tent has a similar trim on top of some gray fabric. The posts of the tent are attached to light-up stars around the rim and are wrapped in fairy lights.
During the pre-chorus, the background changes to a huge Ferris wheel spinning. The ground now has more of a cobblestone texture. There is a small bit of smoke floating near the floor. There is also a shorter, light-colored fence at the entrance queue of the ride wrapped in fairy lights. The legs of the Ferris wheel are red and the wheel itself is red and slate gray. There are lots of gray support beams and diamond-shaped red and slate gray panels in the center of the wheel. The baskets are the same colors as the wheel and have all around windows. Nearly everything is lined with small lightbulbs or light strips that flicker and glow to the music.
At the chorus, there is a carousel spinning behind the dancer. There are two rows of white ride-on horses with powder blue saddles. They slide up and down the metal pole in the opposite position of the horse in front or behind them. The bottom platform of the carousel is lined with larger, lit bulbs, every other of which flashes to the snaps in the music. The core motor of the ride is mainly red and features slate gray panels, lights, and octagonal and rectangular windows. The roof is red with a thick trim, with more gold intricacies similar to the Big Top tent. There is a wavy slate gray overhang, which is lined with a solid strip of light that flashes.
In the reprise of the second chorus, the background becomes solely focused on the night sky. A kaleidoscope effect occurs with the wheel of the Ferris wheel and one of the rows of horses from the carousel. There are now large, white stars in place of where the baskets were on the Ferris wheel. The entire kaleidoscope revolves around another central star.
There are 2 Gold Moves in this routine:
Gold Move 1: Move your right hand up while open your legs.
Gold Move 2: Have your legs crossed with your left arm out, your right arm out as well, and your right hand bent.
