Episode Recap

Rogers displays three pairs of shoes. One of them, tap shoes, belong to Chuck Aber. Aber is at the dance studio today for a tap lesson with his neighborhood friend, Sam Weber. Rogers goes to the studio. Aber introduces Rogers to Sam Weber. At Aber's request, Weber does the rip walk and train walk with his tap shoes. Rogers sees Weber tap-dance his emotions. Weber tap-dances ex tempore to jazz music. Rogers stays to see Weber and his class perform a closing number. Back at the television house, Mr. McFeely shows a videotape on how people make shoes.
In the NOM, Lady Aberlin tap-dances. Queen Sara decides not to go to the Always Happy Dance Studio, but Lady Aberlin tells her she doesn't have to know dance to attend dance school. King Friday learns of the dance studio from both. He thinks his invitation to the studio didn't reach him. But he will go, invitation or no. At the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Elaine laments losing the dance rocking chair that did not belong to her. She also regrets the name "Always Happy Dance Studio." Friday arrives, fully prepared for a dance lesson. He wishes to disprove Lady Elaine's theory that men can't dance. Sam Weber appears, chair in hand, as the new dancing salesman at Corny's factory. He test-dances the dance rocking chair. This leads Lady Elaine to consider printing more invitations. King Friday gives Weber a crown with tap shoes around the brim.
