The Dance Hall is a small, plain studio which sees relatively little use. Students may come up here to dance, be alone, or just talk if they wish. There is a wardrobe with several outfits to choose from, and a corridor which leads down to the Third Floor Corridor.

Keegan had just finished a dance routine he'd come up with last week and was currently sitting on the floor with his back against the mirrored wall, panting and sweating. He enjoyed creating choreography for others, but Hogwarts wasn't really the place for that. That was usually a summer hobby with his friends from back home. But in order to stay in shape until then, he spent a few of his days here in the dance hall. Running his fingers through his hair, Keegan attempted to push his curly locks out of his face. He sure hoped there wasn't any homework he forgot to do...

Lena was wearing leggings, white and black adidas sneakers, and a loose shirt. Her hair is pulled up in a loose bun, and she has a duffel bag slinged across a sholder with bottles of water and a towel. She didn't expect to see someone else there, though. Nobody frequented this small, stashed away room. "Oh, hello," she smiles warmly despite her surprise. "Are you... done here? I can wait."

Keegan wasn't expecting anyone else to be here - not because he had a claim on the room or anything, but just because not many people at Hogwarts danced. Although his breathing was still heavy, he managed to answer with a shake of his head. "I'm done. It's all yours." Keegan offered, though he made no attempt to leave. He was tired and wanted to rest a bit before making the trip back to his room.

She nods and ventures further into the room. She crosses it, and place sher bag on the piano's bench. "Want some water?" she offers, looking over, concerned. "You look like you're gonna die," she adds. "I've got a couple bottles! I don't mind."

Keegan let's out a small chuckle at her concern. She just met him and is already fretting over him. "I won't die on you, don't worry. But some water would be nice." He admitted. In his rush, he'd forgotten to grab some water before coming. And then, he had the smartest idea to work himself harder than usual. Truthfully, he needed someone to look after him. He could be a real dunce sometimes.

Alena smiles brightly and nods, fishing a water bottle out of her bag quickly. She trudges over to him once she's found it, and extends it happily. "I'm Alena," she introduces herself. "Are you a dancer, too?"

Keegan gratefully takes the bottle, nodding his thanks. He took a couple swigs of the water before answering. "Keegan." He stole one more sip before screwing the lid back on. "And no, not really. Dancing is more of a hobby for me than passion so I wouldn't really call myself a dancer." Keegan explained, shrugging a shoulder. "You can just call me an appreciator of art. I'm assuming you are a dancer though?" He returned, a ghost of a smile dancing across his lips as he raised an eyebrow at the girl.

Blær stumbles into the room, and peaks around. This is clearly not the room that she was searching for. Transfiguration is where she's really headed. But she wants to take a look around here anyway. Her eyes look around carefully. Really, a dance hall in a prestigious school? She wants to laugh at the absurdity of it all. Before Blær goes in any further, she stops to call out, "Is anyone here?"

Fredrick hears someone's voice, looking up from where he was tucked away in a corner of the room working on homework. He was out of sight from the door, wondering if he should speak up. "Yeah, occupied at the moment," He called back, not in a rude way but more of in a matter of fact way. "Need something?"

"No, I don't need anything." Blær's voice falls off a bit at the end, growing shy with every spoken word. "I-I'm new." Ah, get it together Blær! So she composes herself and walks in a bit more. "I was looking for Transfiguration but found this instead...?" She starts looking around at the room. "Does anyone actually dance in here?" She's all questions and hardly any answers.

He hears her enter the room and decides to pop out from his spot behind the door. “I’m afraid not. This room has been empty for as long as I’ve been here, which is only a year and a half.” He replied, finally getting to see who the voice belong too. “Transfiguration is on the other side of school, by the time you get there it’ll be over,” he said with a small shrug. “Anyways, you’re welcome to stay. I don’t mind company, I’m just working on homework.”

"Oh, you're not from here either..." Blær walks in a bit more, but everything about her screams shy and hesitant. But she should try and make friends anyway, right? Ah, why did she have to be cursed with being awkward and shy? She finds herself leaning against the mirror, still close to the door. "This is actually my first year here. I came from Durmstrang. What about you?" There's another small hesitation, and then Blær slides down to sit.

arfgeh It's like every single day of her going to Durmstrang for the past five years just left her memory. She has no idea where to even start. "Uhhh, it's super dark?" She doesn't really how awkward her words are until she lets them linger in the air. "Honestly, it makes me so surprised because it's so light here. Durmstrang is small and dark and doesn't at all compare to the regalness here. I was kinda glad to get away, except everyone came here too soo...." She says her words hurriedly, almost nervously. "I'm Icelandic, actually. My name is Blær. Like Blair, but more Icelandic-sounding."

“That pretty much sums up what I’ve heard about Durmstrang.” He said with a small shrug. “Also i realize that I said second year instead of sixth year, I mean the my second year here at Hogwarts.” He told her, rubbing the back of his neck. “Oh cool, I’m sorry if I butcher you’re name.

"I mean, I don't really know what else to say about it. It's not all evil like everyone says it is, but it's not all rainbows and fairytales." There's another small pause from her. "You do look too old to be second year." She laughs despite the corny joke. "It's fine, yours is so fine and short that I'm almost jealous. Fre-ddie. Anyway, tell me about Ilvermorny, then."

"Well my full name is Fredrick, but everyone calls me Freddie. Only my parents call me Fredrick," He said with a small shrug. "But your name is really pretty, I love names in other languages." He commented, not wanting to make her feel bad about her name. "Well... Ilvermorny is just a jumble of everything, imagine a crap ton of other cultures shoved under one building for an entire school year. There's so many kids that come from different backgrounds that Ilvermorny is just a salad bowl of stuff, it's pretty cool. It's not as strict as it is here, but the punishments are pretty harsh...

He asked, before realizing how it sounded. "A-Ah. I didn't mean it like that," He said in an apologetic tone. "Oh yeah! Hogsmeade is super cute, it's like a little village nestled away. I love spending the day there with my boyfriend-" He stopped immediately, realizing he admitted to being LGBT+ and was panicking internally.

"Aw, no. That's not true at all! I like the way you speak." Blær nods enthusiastically, trying to prove her point. But at the other's words, she can't help but start laughing. "Oh, no, it's totally okay! Sorry but it is kinda true..." She trails off, almost looking around to make sure there's no random lost Durmstrang student lurking in the distance. At the mention of a boyfriend, her ear immediately perk up. "You have a boyfriend! Oh my, tell me all about it! I love romantic stories." Blær leans back, a dreamy expression on her face.

Fredrick feels himself flush with relief when she is happy to hear about his boyfriend, making him feel less self conscious. “Well, he works at a bar and just graduated last year. He’s a year older than me, and he’s amazing. We actually met here at Hogwarts because I ran into him in the hallway... Ugh, he was so gorgeous that I thought I was going to melt into a puddle right there.” He explained, his face red from ear to ear as he spoke. “W-What about you? Do you have a significant other?”

"Ahhh this is so! cute!" She blushes once she realizes that that she's probably fangirling a bit too much. But in this moment, Blær truly turns alive. "Do you go and visit him and surprise him and be cute together? Ahh like this is couple goals." Her expression becomes a bit more surprised when Freddie asks her his own question. Suddenly, she's feeling a bit more of her usual shy self. "Honestly, I didn't even talk to anyone when I was at Durmstrang. I mean I had a few crushes here and there and I like to imagine in my head how it's going to be when someone finally picks me up...but yeah." She finishes off a bit quietly, face as red as Freddie's.

"I wouldn't exactly say we're couple goals but we might be close to it," He said and rubbed the back of neck a little. "I used to be like you you know, always daydreaming and having crushes but never thinking something would happen... But I'm sure something will, you're pretty cute," He told her, trying to compliment her as best as he could.

"What do you mean? You're totally couple goals, the way you two interact is so cute and loving." With a sigh, her hand reaches up to act as a rest for her chin. Dreamily, she says, "I wish I could relate. It's so nice, isn't it? Having someone care for you." Freddie's next words kinda pull her off of her daydream-like slumber. "Oomph! You're a flatterer, you! Thanks though, no one's ever called me cute before. Even if it's some kid I just met today it means a lot to me! But honestly I'm too shy to even look at someone."

Freddie pouted a little, I'm not a kid... "Well you deserve to be called cute everyday, and I'm sure you'll find someone in the future. Who knows? Maybe it just isn't the time right now," He said, knowing there was a time and a place for everything. "Maybe I should give you dating advice? Not that it would mean much, but as a person who's left the single stage of life maybe I can pass my wisdom onto you," He said, more in a joking/teasing manner.

Her mouth suddenly opened to say more, but she was interrupted by the sound of students moving about outside. "Oh! I missed my class. I better get going." She makes to get up, gathering all of her materials. Blær stops, though. She couldn't just leave him behind like that, not after all he's done. "By the way, thank you for listening to me. No one's ever been as nice to me as you have. Well, that's a lie, but it's also sorta true. But thanks a lot. You're a really nice person.

Blær has no fucking idea how to even react to people being nice because it's never even happened. Hell, her heart flutters if anyone opens the door for her, right now she's positively floating. Whoever Freddie's boyfriend, he must live in the clouds because wow is Freddie good with words. Blær tells the truth when she thinks that she envies him, even as a writer herself. "Me too! Let's become friends? I gotta go now but I wanna see you again. In the friend way though. So, like.." Is it awkward to just leave??? She doesn't know, but with a final wave and a smile, Blær is off to her next destination.

Eeku is off trying to make friends, but Alena isn't ready to expose herself to potential rejection and subsequent embarrassment. Thus, she's up in the Dance Hall, the recently added stereo playing a ballet song. It's perfect, seeing as she now has the time to practice some of the more recent steps she'd learned. Believing nobody would walk in to see her in her leotard, tights and slippers mid-practice, her movements were fluid and relaxed, as should be.

Cass didn't really know if she was a dancer because she had never tried real dancing, just twirling around in her bedroom to songs on the radio. Even then, she still entered the Dance Hall with the intention of doing just that, twirling around to songs on the radio. To her surprise, someone else was there—her cousin, who looked like she was in her own world. Cass stopped at the entrance to watch her for a few seconds before clapping.

The fall also happened to mess with her bun, though the logic behind that was well beyond her. She sighs and hauls herself onto a sitting position, wincing a bit as she twists her wrist, trying to make sure it wasn't broken or sprained. It was okay, but it still hurt to move it. "You know I lose myself when I dance," she says, but fakes a chuckle because she honestly doesn't wanna make Cassie feel bad or anything. "What're you doing up here, anyways?"
