This series is a regular on PBS in NYC. Having moved to another state, I was extremely disappointed that it is not on our PBS cable channel. This is a wonderful, wonderful series that incorporates classical dance into lovely storylines. What I liked best was that the dancers are both female and male, thus appealing to boys and girls. It is filmed live on a set (no audience) and the music is classical. The sets are basic, but the characters use their imaginations and colorful props to play out a storyline. If I remember correctly, there is a narrator and the characters do not speak. My son watched this until age two. It was the only t.v. he was allowed to watch. I am so thrilled to find this on dvd as it is not played on PBS (to my knowledge) outside the New York metropolitan area.
