A new piece will show the joys of dancing at a young age.

The breadth of topics on Behind the Scenes were chosen to bring Americans a richer perspective about a number of issues that affect their world. From industry to economic trends to technology, James Earl Jones hosts the series that highlights many different topics. A new piece is being developed with content providers on how youth ballet is helping kids of all ages gain strength, agility and poise.

It can be difficult to get children off electronic devices and into a ballet class today, but youth ballet is available to the athletes of America as well as to those children who simply want to learn a new skill. From local classes to the big city youth companies, there are plenty of opportunities out there for every body type. Even boys who play football can benefit from the agility moves taught in youth ballet. If someone was to have a child who may be interested, then generally they'll need to take a placement class to determine what level they will start at. Viewers can learn more about what the classes look like and what the benefits are for children. The lessons can often be carried into every part of their life like following directions, emulating actions and keeping a body fit. Whether a viewer's child makes the commitment to ballet for the rest of their life or moves on to a different sport, there is little to lose in potentially trying it out.

Behind the Scenes is produced independently from APT and PBS, and the segments do not represent their views or opinions. It's distributed independently nationwide.
