Theme: When you’re afraid to try something new, sometimes all you need to do is take that first step to open up a whole new world.

Sophie is a shy mouse who sets out to learn on her own after she is enticed by the dancing she sees in the studio across the street.

LeVar masters some fancy footwork as he learns new dances — the mambo and hip hop. Viewers are taken across the world (including Bali, Ireland, and Australia) to look at the many cultural differences there are in dance.
