Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN
Zoe interrupts the opening theme sequence to point out the ballerinas in one shot (since she is one herself), and announces that there will be a lot of dancing today on Sesame Street. She leaps out of shot, and the sequence resumes.

SCENE 1
Everyone on Sesame Street appears to be in a dancing mood. Big Bird welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and he and Zoe reveal that there's going to be a dance party later today.

SCENE 1
cont'd
Elmo says he'll be doing a super-special, one-of-a-kind dance at the party, but he doesn't know what kind of dance to do yet. Zoe displays some of her ballet moves, which leads to a sequence of the New York City Ballet doing the same kind of dance.
SCENE 1
cont'd
Elmo has fun dancing like Zoe, but he'd rather do his own kind of dance at the party. Big Bird offers to help find a new dance for Elmo to do, and they venture off in search of one.
