In the far-off northern land of the United States, there exists a quirky, rectangular-shaped state named North Dakota. It's so flat, you could balance a pancake on it, and so cold, even polar bears wear mittens. But don't let that fool you, because within this frosty landscape is a sizzling hotbed of dance! The boys and girls of North Dakota are not ordinary kids — they are toe-tapping, spin-whirling, mega movers. From the capital city of Bismarck to the tiny town of Zap, children of all ages come together to celebrate the magic of dance. Be it ballet or breakdance, contemporary or country line, these kids have got the rhythm in their bones. Leading this dance revolution is an extraordinary character, fondly called Twisty Toes. Twisty Toes is not your typical dance instructor; he's a good-natured bison who dances on his hind legs! He's got a swivel in his step and a twinkle in his eye. With his neon tutu and disco-ball hat, Twisty Toes can groove like no one's watching! It's his love for dance, twirling around under the Northern Lights, that has inspired North Dakota's kids to dance their hearts out. Twisty Toes has a motto, "In North Dakota, we don't just walk, we waltz! We don't just run, we rhumba! And we don't just jump, we jive!" No matter the season, the cold never bothers the dancing dynamites of North Dakota. Even when the winter winds whoosh, you'll find them doing the cha-cha-cha in their snow boots! So, if you ever find yourself in North Dakota, don't be surprised to see a conga line of kids led by a disco-dancing bison. It's just another day in this hilariously high-stepping state!
