Two saucers, two teacups,

0:00:510:00:54

a teapot...

0:00:540:00:55

ah, and tea.

0:00:550:00:58

Steady as she goes.

0:00:580:01:00

BOTH: Woh!

0:01:000:01:03

Sid, you really have to be more careful!

0:01:030:01:06

Sorry, but look at this lovely, delicious cake!

0:01:060:01:10

Wheee!

0:01:100:01:13

Sid, you will definitely drop that cake.

0:01:130:01:17

Oh, no, I'm not.

0:01:170:01:19

I just have to be very careful, Rebecca.

0:01:190:01:22

He will.

0:01:220:01:25

All you have to do is be very, very careful.

0:01:250:01:30

-Come on, Sid. Come and have some tea.

-OK.

0:01:300:01:33

Oh, no!

0:01:330:01:36

-Oops!

-Who put that table there?

0:01:360:01:38

-You did.

-Did I?

0:01:380:01:40

Oh.

0:01:400:01:42

CUCKOO!

0:01:420:01:44

-Hold on, Sid, it's time!

-Great!

0:01:440:01:47

It's time to play!

0:01:470:01:50

Whose turn is it today?

0:01:500:01:52

Let it be me!

0:01:520:01:54

Let it be me!

0:01:540:01:55

-Me!

-Me!

0:01:550:01:57

Let it be me, let it be me.

0:01:580:02:01

Let it be me.

0:02:010:02:04

Let it be me.

0:02:040:02:05

# Let it be me, let it be me

0:02:050:02:08

# I really, really, really, really hope that it's me! #

0:02:080:02:12

-Let.

-Let.

-Let, let.

0:02:120:02:14

Let, let, let it be me!

0:02:140:02:16

# Let it be me Let it be me

0:02:160:02:20

# I really, really, really, really hope that it's me! #

0:02:200:02:23

-Could it be me?

0:02:230:02:27

It's me!

0:02:270:02:29

# Yes, it's me, yes, it's me

0:02:290:02:32

# I'm really, really, really, really happy

0:02:320:02:36

# It's me! #

0:02:360:02:38

Look, there's the dressing-up room!

0:02:380:02:41

# Let's play! #

0:02:410:02:43

This is really exciting!

0:02:430:02:46

Let's find out what we're playing today!

0:02:460:02:49

I have a firefighter's helmet,

0:02:540:02:56

a caveperson's outfit, and clown shoes.

0:02:560:02:58

BEEP! BEEP!

0:02:580:03:00

Let's try something else.

0:03:000:03:02

What am I wearing now?

0:03:040:03:07

A hooded top, a vest,

0:03:070:03:10

comfortable trousers for bending and stretching

0:03:100:03:13

and soft shoes.

0:03:130:03:15

So what are we playing today?

0:03:150:03:18

I know. We're playing at being ballet dancers,

0:03:180:03:21

and we'll dance on the stage. I love dancing!

0:03:210:03:25

What do we need to know?

0:03:250:03:27

Ballet is a type of dance that takes a lot of practice.

0:03:270:03:31

The best ballet dancers spend years trying to perform on the stage.

0:03:310:03:35

Boy ballet dancers lift weights

0:03:380:03:41

to make themselves strong enough to lift the girls.

0:03:410:03:45

In a ballet company, there is a corps de ballet

0:03:450:03:49

and a prima ballerina.

0:03:490:03:51

She is the lead dancer who has her own special moves and costumes.

0:03:510:03:56

The corps de ballet is the name we use for all the other dancers.

0:03:560:04:01

Some ballet dancers wear point shoes,

0:04:010:04:04

the toe flattened so the dancer can dance on their tip-toes.

0:04:040:04:08

Ballet shoes have to be made by a specialist shoemaker.

0:04:080:04:15

That's what we need to remember. Is there anything else?

0:04:150:04:19

Woh!

0:04:190:04:21

A bouquet of flowers.

0:04:210:04:24

Smells lovely. I wonder what I need these for.

0:04:240:04:27

I guess I'll find out.

0:04:270:04:29

We have everything we need. Let's go!

0:04:290:04:32

# Let's play! #

0:04:320:04:34

Hey, Rebecca!

0:04:340:04:36

Flowers - for me?

0:04:360:04:38

Uh? No. Can you guess what we're playing today?

0:04:380:04:41

-Erm...

-Hold on. Let me give you a clue.

0:04:410:04:44

Hoo-hoo! Are you playing clumsy clowns?

0:04:440:04:47

No, we're playing ballet dancers!

0:04:470:04:50

-Mind you don't drop those flowers!

-I won't. Oh!

0:04:500:04:54

-Who put that there?

-You did!

0:04:540:04:56

Oh.

0:04:560:04:58

-Have fun.

-Will do. See you!

0:04:580:05:00

# Let's play! #

0:05:000:05:02

Let's play ballet dancers.

0:05:020:05:04

Wow!

0:05:040:05:06

Wow!

0:05:100:05:11

# Let's play! #

0:05:110:05:13

Woh!

0:05:160:05:18

I'm on a stage!

0:05:180:05:19

In a theatre!

0:05:190:05:21

It must be great to be onstage,

0:05:210:05:23

all that performing and bowing.

0:05:230:05:26

Thank you!

0:05:260:05:28

Yes, thank you very much.

0:05:280:05:30

My name is Sid,

0:05:300:05:32

and you have been very...

0:05:320:05:33

-'Scuse me.

-Sorry?

-I need to get past.

-Sorry.

0:05:330:05:36

Thank you!

0:05:360:05:38

Who's she? She's pretty fancy!

0:05:380:05:41

Wow! That must be where the audience sits.

0:05:410:05:45

It must be really scary onstage,

0:05:450:05:47

everyone in the audience looking down on you.

0:05:470:05:50

I'd probably want to go...

0:05:500:05:52

Excuse me, coming through.

0:05:520:05:54

It's really busy. They're getting ready for a show.

0:05:540:05:57

Better find out what I'm to do. Maybe that woman can help me.

0:05:570:06:01

She looks friendly enough. I think.

0:06:010:06:04

I wonder if you can help.

0:06:040:06:07

I'm a ballet dancer and I guess you are, too.

0:06:070:06:10

A ballet dancer?!

0:06:100:06:12

A...ballet...dancer?!

0:06:120:06:14

I'm THE ballerina.

0:06:140:06:17

The PRIMA ballerina of this show!

0:06:170:06:19

Sorry, your ladyship.

0:06:190:06:22

I'm waiting for my male lead dancer.

0:06:220:06:26

Maybe it's you?

0:06:260:06:28

Yes, I guess it is.

0:06:280:06:30

Where have you been? Are you warmed up?

0:06:300:06:33

Erm...I feel OK. It's a little bit chilly.

0:06:330:06:36

These theatres can be really draughty.

0:06:360:06:39

GO! Get warmed up...in the warm-up room.

0:06:390:06:42

Warm-up room?

0:06:420:06:44

That's where I'm going...now.

0:06:440:06:46

Bye!

0:06:460:06:48

# Let's play! #

0:06:500:06:52

Hello?

0:06:520:06:53

Woo-hoo!

0:06:530:06:54

It's warm in here, all right.

0:06:540:06:56

That's because this is the warm-up room.

0:06:560:06:59

Great. It's where I need to be because I am here to get warmed up.

0:06:590:07:04

-Excuse me?

-Yes.

0:07:070:07:09

What are you doing?

0:07:090:07:10

I'm getting warmed up.

0:07:100:07:13

You don't get warmed up

0:07:130:07:16

by sitting on the floor.

0:07:160:07:18

Don't you?

0:07:180:07:19

'Course you don't!

0:07:190:07:22

Could you show me how to warm up?

0:07:220:07:24

Of course, I'm the coach.

0:07:240:07:27

-That's my job.

-Great!

0:07:270:07:29

Where do we get started?

0:07:290:07:31

Form A, here we go.

0:07:310:07:33

Five, six, seven, eight

0:07:330:07:35

and one, two, three, four,

0:07:350:07:37

five, six, seven, eight.

0:07:370:07:40

Tummy in, please, nice and tight.

0:07:420:07:46

That's perfect!

0:07:460:07:48

Nice work!

0:07:480:07:50

HE WHEEZES

0:07:500:07:52

Lovely! Do you feel warmed up?

0:07:520:07:55

More than warm. Hot.

0:07:550:07:57

Good, good!

0:07:570:07:59

Now you're ready to practice a lift.

0:07:590:08:02

A lift?!

0:08:020:08:03

The trickiest part of the show. To lift

0:08:030:08:06

the prima ballerina.

0:08:060:08:08

I've carried some shopping in my time...

0:08:080:08:11

It's a bit harder than that.

0:08:110:08:13

-Is it?

-Yes. Let's give it a go.

0:08:130:08:15

That's it, behind me, and hands on my hips.

0:08:150:08:19

Here we go. Three, two, one and...

0:08:190:08:22

Oh! Sorry.

0:08:220:08:25

Crikey!

0:08:260:08:28

You'll have to work on your arm strength, mate.

0:08:280:08:31

Lifts are really hard!

0:08:310:08:33

She jumps in the air, I have to catch her.

0:08:330:08:35

I can't do this.

0:08:350:08:37

Oh, hold on!

0:08:370:08:39

I remember, do you?

0:08:390:08:40

Boy ballet dancers lift weights to make them strong enough

0:08:400:08:44

to lift the girls. I need to make myself strong.

0:08:440:08:48

Sweet!

0:09:040:09:06

Oh! Are you ready to do some lifting?

0:09:060:09:11

So ready they'll have to invent a new word for ready.

0:09:110:09:15

Hands on my hips like before, here we go.

0:09:150:09:18

Three, two, one, and...

0:09:180:09:22

Wow! That was amazing, Sid!

0:09:220:09:27

-I think you're ready for something harder.

-Really?!

0:09:270:09:30

Hands out. I'll turn.

0:09:300:09:33

Here I go. Catch my leg, pick me up.

0:09:330:09:36

That's beautiful, chest out. And down.

0:09:360:09:39

Wow! Well done, Sid!

0:09:390:09:42

I think you're ready to lift the prima ballerina in the show.

0:09:420:09:46

Thanks!

0:09:460:09:48

Well, go to your dressing room, now.

0:09:480:09:50

Right.

0:09:500:09:52

Don't forget these!

0:09:520:09:54

Give these to the prima ballerina at the end of the show.

0:09:540:09:58

OK...if we get that far.

0:09:580:10:01

-See you!

-See you!

0:10:010:10:03

Which dressing room is mine?

0:10:040:10:08

There's a door with a star on it.

0:10:080:10:12

I'm a big star, right?

0:10:120:10:15

Stop!

0:10:150:10:17

Oh, sorry!

0:10:170:10:19

You should always knock before entering a dressing room.

0:10:190:10:23

Sorry. I just thought it was...my dressing room.

0:10:230:10:27

I am the star of this show.

0:10:270:10:29

The prima ballerina everyone has come to see.

0:10:290:10:32

-Where's my costume?

-When did you last have it?

0:10:320:10:35

Go and fetch it from wardrobe.

0:10:350:10:38

There isn't a wardrobe in here.

0:10:400:10:43

Wardrobe is the room in the theatre

0:10:430:10:46

where all the costumes are made,

0:10:460:10:48

cleaned and repaired.

0:10:480:10:50

Is it?!

0:10:500:10:52

Yes.

0:10:520:10:54

It is. Wardrobe.

0:10:540:10:55

Where I'm going. Now.

0:10:550:10:57

Miss. Bye.

0:10:570:10:59

# Let's play! #

0:10:590:11:01

Wardrobe.

0:11:020:11:03

Wardrobe.

0:11:050:11:08

Ah...

0:11:080:11:10

a room full of costumes. This must be it.

0:11:100:11:13

Of course it is, dear.

0:11:130:11:15

-Zis is ze wardrobe department.

-Eh?

0:11:150:11:19

Who said that?!

0:11:190:11:21

Only me!

0:11:210:11:23

I am ze specialist shoemaker.

0:11:230:11:26

I also make ze costumes.

0:11:260:11:29

But don't mind me.

0:11:290:11:31

-Carry on!

-Oh, thanks!

0:11:310:11:33

I need to find a costume

0:11:330:11:35

for the prima ballerina and I do not want to get this wrong. Oh, dear!

0:11:350:11:40

I know! I remember, do you?

0:11:400:11:42

The prima ballerina is the lead dancer in the ballet.

0:11:420:11:46

Her costume is different from the others.

0:11:460:11:48

I need to find a costume that is the odd one out.

0:11:480:11:52

Ah...

0:11:520:11:53

That black one looks different.

0:11:530:11:55

That's the one, all right.

0:11:550:11:58

Brilliant. Thank you! I'll need something for me.

0:11:580:12:02

This looks good.

0:12:020:12:04

Can I borrow this?

0:12:040:12:05

-Of course you can.

-Thank you! Let's get back to the dressing room

0:12:050:12:10

before the prima ballerina gets cross...again.

0:12:100:12:13

The door with the star on it.

0:12:160:12:18

Mustn't forget.

0:12:180:12:20

No barging in!

0:12:200:12:23

Come!

0:12:230:12:24

It's me, Mrs Prima Ballerina.

0:12:240:12:26

-I have your costume.

-Good boy.

-Phew!

0:12:260:12:29

# Let's play! #

0:12:290:12:31

Come on. Come on!

0:12:310:12:35

Oh!

0:12:350:12:36

I get very nervous before a big performance.

0:12:360:12:40

Sid!

0:12:400:12:43

'This is your three-minute call.

0:12:430:12:45

'Would all dancers go to the stage?'

0:12:450:12:47

It is time!

0:12:470:12:50

Sidney, I could not have taken to the stage without...

0:12:500:12:54

my costume.

0:12:540:12:55

You have saved the show!

0:12:550:12:58

Now, I must go. It is time...

0:13:010:13:05

for my performance!

0:13:050:13:06

Wow, this is a great show!

0:13:170:13:19

You're on. Go!

0:13:190:13:21

-What?!

-It's time to do your lift!

0:13:210:13:24

My lift?

0:13:240:13:25

How do I do that?

0:13:250:13:28

Right, I think I have it. Wish me luck!

0:13:280:13:31

-Wow! High-five!

-APPLAUSE

0:13:440:13:46

That was great, Sid!

0:13:460:13:48

Beautiful lift!

0:13:480:13:50

I did exactly what you taught me. I love the ballet!

0:13:500:13:53

Thanks for everything.

0:13:530:13:55

-Where are you going? It's only the interval.

-The interval?

0:13:550:13:59

-Yeah, halftime.

-Oh, right!

0:13:590:14:03

So do we get halftime oranges?

0:14:030:14:04

No, but you can go to your dressing room for ten minutes.

0:14:040:14:07

-See you!

-OK.

0:14:070:14:09

Ten minutes. Thanks!

0:14:090:14:11

PRIMA BALLERINA MOANS

0:14:110:14:13

Whoa! Prima Ballerina, what's happened?

0:14:130:14:16

My shoe. It's got a hole in it!

0:14:160:14:18

-Oh, no!

-I need a new pair now!

0:14:180:14:21

Get me them or the show cannot go on!

0:14:210:14:25

-Please.

She needs a new pair of ballet hoes. Her pointe shoes.

0:14:280:14:31

Where am I going to get them from? Oh, hold on! I remember. Do you?

0:14:310:14:35

Ballet shoes are made by a specialist shoemaker,

0:14:350:14:38

and I met a shoemaker earlier. I'll ask her. Back in a mo.

0:14:380:14:41

-Specialist shoemaker!

-Hello! Can I help you?

-I hope so.

0:14:490:14:53

I need a new pair of shoes! For the Prima Ballerina.

0:14:530:14:55

And she needs them now!

0:14:550:14:57

All right, keep you hair on. Now let me see.

0:14:570:15:02

Pointe shoes, pointe shoes, pointe shoes...

0:15:020:15:05

Ah! Pointe shoes.

0:15:050:15:08

-Here, will these do?

-I hope so! Thanks very much!

0:15:080:15:11

Young people, always in a rush.

Come on, come on, boy.

0:15:200:15:23

0:15:250:15:30

0:15:300:15:32

Thank you.

0:15:380:15:39

0:15:390:15:40

Phew! Just in time.

0:15:400:15:42

MUSIC BEGINS

0:15:420:15:43

BOING!

0:15:480:15:49

APPLAUSE

0:16:040:16:05

APPLAUSE CONTINUES

0:16:070:16:09

The bouquet, Sid! Give her the bouquet!

0:16:250:16:27

Oh! For me? Thank you.

0:16:310:16:34

How totally unexpected.

0:16:340:16:36

APPLAUSE

0:16:380:16:40

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:16:420:16:44

-Wow! That was amazing!

-Well done, Sid!

0:16:440:16:48

Are you coming to the after show party?

0:16:480:16:51

No, it looks like it's time for me to go home.

0:16:510:16:53

-But can I take one of those cakes with me?

-Sure you can.

0:16:530:16:57

-See you later, Sid.

-Lovely.

0:16:570:16:59

Thanks! Well, we did it. We saved the day.

0:16:590:17:02

But we'd never have done it without remembering everything

0:17:020:17:05

we needed to know.

0:17:050:17:06

Boy ballet dancers lift weights to make themselves strong enough

0:17:070:17:11

to lift the girls.

0:17:110:17:13

The Prima Ballerina is the lead dancer

0:17:130:17:15

and has her own special costume.

0:17:150:17:18

And some ballet dancers wear pointe shoes,

0:17:180:17:21

which have to made by a specialist shoemaker.

0:17:210:17:24

-Sid, I could never have done it without you.

-Thanks!

0:17:250:17:30

Well, it's time for me to go now,

0:17:300:17:32

but it's been great dancing with you.

0:17:320:17:34

-And you too.

-Bye!

-Bye!

0:17:340:17:36

-Hi, Sid. How did it go?

-Hello, Rebecca. It was amazing!

0:17:430:17:47

-I got to dance on a stage and lift the Prima Ballerina.

-Oh, wow!

0:17:470:17:51

Don't worry, though, I didn't drop her. Is it time for tea?

0:17:510:17:54

Yes. I've made a fresh pot.

0:17:540:17:56

-Mm, lovely, and I've got something to go with it!

-A cake!

0:17:560:17:59

-Yes, to replace the one I dropped earlier.

-Oh, thanks, Sid!

0:17:590:18:02

No problem. Well, playing ballet dancers was great fun.

0:18:020:18:06
