Dance teacher Miss Frost and her friend Nico have fun, shake things up and explore different kinds of dance, encouraging viewers to jump up and participate in creative movement.
Nico Can Dance! invites children to jump up and join Miss Frost and Nico as they use their imaginations to create fantastical worlds through creative movement.
Each two minute episode has our characters discovering amazing things around them, inspiring them to move. Whether they find themselves underwater dancing like starfish, on a mountainside dancing like bugs, or on the moon dancing like comets in outer space, Miss Frost and Nico always find new and exciting ways to shake things up.
Nico doesn’t always move exactly like Miss Frost, and that’s okay! He has his own way of interpreting the world around him, and finds joy in being curious about everything. Miss Frost encourages Nico to try out new moves, and they celebrate when he tries his best.
With the use of voice-over narration and by looking directly to camera, Miss Frost welcomes children to “Come and dance with us!”
