Mister Rogers arrives with a pair of tap-dance shoes which he compares to his sneakers and his dress shoes. He invites viewers along as he visits Chuck Aber's dance studio where dancer Sam Weber is teaching.

At the dance studio, Mr. Weber demonstrates his tap-dancing talent by showing different ways he expresses his emotions through dance. Mr. Weber shares a full dance routine before Mister Rogers leaves the studio.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers is paid a visit by Mr. McFeely who shares a videotape about how people make shoes.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin and Queen Sara are preparing to go to Lady Elaine's dance school. King Friday decides to join them but has not received an invitation to the school.

At the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Elaine has returned Corney's Dance Rockit although she feels no remorse after taking it. King Friday arrives at the Museum for dance class but is told by Lady Elaine that "men can't dance." Sam Weber visits the Neighborhood as a sales representative of Corney's factory and disproves Lady Elaine's belief about men dancing.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about things that people can do when they are feeling certain feelings.
