Tour born of rhythm, attitude, en-pointe collaboration,
Community, shared unity, humanity, emancipation,
Passion for dance promenading relations’ rise and fall,
Sport inspiring art, inspiring sport, performed with balls,
Journeys of life, love, loss, grace and strength of spirit,
Why are people clapping? So we can all hear it!
All – together a common theme, a message for us all
Flowers bloom after rain declares Washington
Inspiring attitudes, lifted to rise after they fall
As across the room Kahlo reflects over shadows on the wall
Fallen but not broken, through the darkness, Roots light still shines on
Sound-tracked by drum beat, crickets chip, traffic hum and tennis play, ‘Love – one!’
The strength of life, common ground, at its essence and as its inspiration
Born of the rhythm, full of hope, showcasing the feet of our nation.
