Robbins' version is much different, done on a stylized ballet studio set with barres. The boy is lying on the floor when the curtain rises, and stretches and flexes, watching himself "in the mirror" - right at the audience. A girl enters, and begins to do a bit of barre. She also is constantly checking her reflection. The boy and the girl work in parallel for awhile, and watch themselves in the mirror. Even when they start to dance together, they're constantly checking themselves. But at one interlude in the music, the boy looks away from the mirror and gently kisses the girl. She simply stands up, looks at the boy, looks at herself in the mirror and exits. The boy is left as he began.
