The Kid Should See This

A T.rex Dances Ballet

Watch more with these video collections:

If you thought you’d never see a Tyrannosaurus Rex dancing ballet in a tutu, the Cincinnati Ballet invited one to be a visiting artist. Enjoy.

In the archives, more dinosaurs and more ballet, though not mixed together. Check out The gigantic dinosaur puppets of Walking With Dinosaurs, how toy dinosaur figurines are made, Ballet Swan Lake Fouetée: Nureyev and Fonteyn, The Washington Ballet’s hardest dance moves, and Milena Sidorova‘s The Spider.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.

Curated, kid-friendly, independently-published. Support this mission by becoming a sustaining member today.
