Aunty Tiiu is hosting a dance party at her house and is thrilled when for once more than 3 people show up! Unfortunately the guests are all there because of a dragon attack, but Aunty Tiiu's best friend Marta has asked them to keep it a secret. Soon enough however, everybody starts feeling a bit too comfortable and end up creating havoc both in Tiiu's home and head. Furniture, walls and maybe even a heart is broken, but thankfully there's no damage that a little dance can't repair.
