Mr Belvedere and ballet

Here's an episode of a comedy series which hasn't dated well at all - although it was successful in its day. In this episode of Mr Belvedere, the younger son, Wesley sees ballet on television and decides to take it up. He has to hide the fact he has lessons from his sporting father (shades of Billy Elliot?) until one day he finds out...

This clip does not come especially recommended - it really is dated - but might be of interested to fathers who've ever had a son do ballet (especially the scene at the performance near the end).
