Mister Rogers puts his kitchen table and chairs back in place after the floor was recently cleaned and waxed.

Feeding the fish, he wonders if fish ever dance. As he moves on to Picture-Picture, Mister Rogers shares the image of the Degas painting "Ballet Scene." He shows two different pair of ballet slippers and makes up various ways people might dance with different parts of their bodies.

A phone call from Betty Aberlin prompts Mister Rogers to turn on his television set and view a portion of a program about water skiers.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, an exhausted Mr. McFeely is awakend and called to the castle where he is asked to gather the items needed to accommodate the water skiers who will be visiting. After returning with 75 towels, Mr. McFeely finds a spot behind the castle to take a nap despite having not delivered all of the items on King Friday's list.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Let's Be Together Today before leaving for Negri's Music Shop where he watches a pair of ballet dancers perform. Whie the dancers change into their costumes, Mister Rogers and Mr. Negri spend a moment with two young customers purchasing a musical triangle.
