    Great episode, I dont understand why people on the internet hate it, they must detest ballet or something, the beginning description is not accurate, Hoss does not injure the man playing the fiddle a roughhouser in a bar does, Hoss helps them, Man playing the fiddle breaks his forearm bone from scum in bar and hoss invites them to recover at the ponderosa, the women with the fiddle player is his daughter who they play for bars to make money, but a man (gunsmith and former ballet dancer who suffers a permanent leg injury) critiques the womens dancing ability offers to instruct her in ballet, girl becomes a ballet dancer with a real talent, and a professional ballet opportunity becomes available, at first the father does not like it because after he recovers he wants to play the bar scene again to make money, but he realizes that his daughter has a talent for ballet and let's her go with her instructor, which turns into a romance. The episode is about the potential in a person, and to think about fulfilling one's potential and pursuing a dream.moreless
