Biff doesn’t think he’s a dog. He thinks he’s a ballerina! Brought to life with puppets, songs and Biff the ballet-dancing dog, this funny show will have you laughing out loud and dancing in the aisles.

Little pups aged 3+ will love this heart-warming tale, but big people will have lots of fun, too!
