An uplifting story about a bear who finds a way to do the thing he loves best in the world: dance

Bear loves to dance—ballet, tap, swing, even breakdance. But there's just one problem: he doesn't seem to be very good at it. One day Bear spots a poster for an ice-skating competition—only for bears. Despite feeling nervous on the first day, Bear's swishing, twizzling performance is amazing. The judges award him 10 out of 10 and he wins the gold medal. The other animals who laughed at Bear's dancing suddenly discover that ice skating isn't quite as easy as they thought.
