Appearance of the Dancers
The dancers are a pair of men described as "horseless jockeys", as mentioned in the interview. They have thin black and yellow outlines.
P1 has medium-length dark hair with dark brown helmet with a purple star and secured by an orange chin strap. He wears a long sleeved shirt with the base colored purple that contains white, yellow and orange stars, a small white bowtie and yellow sleeves, with a white shield-shaped emblem on the left shoulder and number 2 engraved in the center. He also wears white pants and dark brown knee-length boots.
P2 has dark hair mostly covered by his helmet, which is dark brown and orange in a checkered pattern and secured by an orange chin strap. He wears a long sleeved shirt with the base colored orange with two yellow lines placed diagonally in his right, small purple collar, a small white bowtie and orange and purple checkered sleeves, with a white square-shaped emblem on the left shoulder and number 5 engraved in the center. He also wears white pants and dark brown knee-length boots.
The routine takes place in a cardboard land. There are shrubs, and a brown road. Halfway in the background, the scenery zooms through quickly backwards like a conveyor, and at a slower pace in the closer half. Horses on strings appear throughout the routine. Stable equipment such as horseshoes and hurdles can also be seen on the conveyor strip. When the symphony quiets down, the background darkens and a spot is highlighted by a bright spotlight. After the Gold Moves, red and white striped lines appear on either side of the road. This is followed by the coaches reaching finish line.
There are 4 Gold Moves for each coach in this routine. All Gold Moves are done consecutively:
Gold Move 1: Put your arms out in a V position.
Gold Move 2: Spread your arms out and lift your left leg.
Gold Move 3: Point straightforward with your right hand, with your legs positioned.
Gold Move 4: Spread out your knees, and put your hands in front of you.
