They say folks from all around the world yearn to attend the NFFTY School of Performance, so come get a glimpse into the best our (imaginary) conservatory has to offer. With remarkable rain ceremonies to valiant vengeance, prepare to be enthralled by the power of performance.

A village of the distant Tswana people of South Africa find themselves in a 2-year long drought. The time has come for the newly initiated princesses to perform the rain ceremony to their gods; in hopes that the rains will fall. Princess Goitsemedi, at first shy's away from performing the dance but as conditions get worse and the dancers begin to faint, she is faced with the task of performing the dance against the Queen's wishes.
