The Audition creates a point of tension when Yuma believes that she is better than all the other dancers and hence interrupts the choreographer and her teaching. This initially creates a slightly awkward atmosphere as the other characters are skeptical of Yuma’s behavior, however later on, warm up to Yuma and her large personality by following her lead and cheer her on as she fights in a dance battle.

The director made this moment of tension possible through the atmosphere it created. They utilized the long pauses and loud and abrupt interruption of Yuma to highlight and emphasize her sassy personality taking over the choreographer’s role as she begins to challenge the choreographer into a dance battle. Furthermore, this atmosphere is developed through the crowd gathered around both Yuma and the choreographer and the loud encouraging cheers being said. Alongside the bright and colorful lighting to enhance the liveliness of the scene, these aspects is what creates the tension and atmosphere of the moment.
