Zoe's Dance Moves

Zoe's Dance Moves is a direct-to-video Sesame Street DVD, featuring a guest appearance by Paula Abdul. It was first released in 2003, then re-released as part of the 3-DVD set Get Ready to Dance and Move! in 2005.

Zoe and Elmo are taking dance lessons, but Elmo forgets his dance shoes and went off to get them. When Zoe arrives, she found that she missed dance class, but the teacher, Paula Abdul, offers Zoe's help in choreographing a new dance move. Through each dance moves, Zoe learns about certain dance moves from traditional ballet to hip hop dance. By the time Zoe and Paula Abdul finish creating their new dance moves, Elmo finds his dancing shoes and is ready to dance along with them.
