Federation Kids & Family has inked a deal with the BBC for new unscripted kids series Let’s Dance. Produced by Sarah Haasz and Canadian broadcaster TVOKids, the 39 x seven-minute show will launch on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer in early 2022.
Set at the National Ballet School of Canada, Let’s Dance features ordinary kids exploring the world of dance through mash-ups of different styles—including breakdancing, ballet, country and K-Pop. It premiered on TVOKids earlier this year, and Federation Kids & Family was appointed as the show’s worldwide distributor in June.
Let’s Dance is Haasz’s first kids project as an independent creator/executive producer. She has since partnered with Canadian pubcaster CBC Kids through her new Toronto-based studio Pillango Productions to develop a live-action tween series with the working title Gangnam Project, about a biracial girl who travels to Korea and is accidentally assigned to a K-Pop school.
