    General CommentJust to tell you this is Kinda wrong, Mimi isn't singing about Dance in here, it's a random chorus member, as Mimi and Roger are exchanging a small, lovely kiss.

    Buts it's mostly just explaining the triple threats of Musical Theatre; Dance, Singing, Acting (Film).

    This is after the song I Should Tell you between Roger and Mimi.

    It's also saying that they will fight the law til they get justice,

    General CommentTo me, it's the same meaning as part A. It's just Mimi and Roger had a song inbetween it.

    General Commentif you watch the movie. the part where it goes all slow motion is SO funny because the camera pans across every couple (angel and collins, roger and mimi, and joanne and maureen) they're all embracing and being all lovey dovey and what not. then you see mark and hes dancing by himself. watch that part i guarantee you'll have a giggle.
