THE DANCING RAINFOREST (2009-2010)
Manny and Kat, on assignment for the National Geographic Society, are excited to be the first photographers to enter the one-of-a-kind Dancing Rainforest. But they encounter a problem that might mean the end of the Dancing Rainforest! Instead of getting amazing photos of the unique animals dancing around, Manny and Kat find themselves using all their energy racing through time and space to save the animals and their homes. Along the way, they must help a snake, some monkeys, and even some birds of paradise dance again by saving the Time, Space and Energy Trees that make the Dancing Rainforest unique. Can Manny, Kat and their animal friends find the Pop-Log'n Drop It Logger before it is too late? To learn of what happens, join us on our adventure deep into the Dancing Rainforest!
Pop-Log'n Drop It's Jam
by Linda Graham & the StrikeTimers
No need to
break on me
and I don't stop
I'm a Hip-Hop
Logger, to do my gig
To be authentic
with physical graffiti
side swipes back spin freeze!
Strut stop wave
point skeeters scooby-dooo!
means "what's up, friends?" in Kiswahili*
A prairie sunrise, mountain storm
They each have their eco-dance
It's smooth, it's sharp, it's strong,
To keep its cycle motion strong
Diversity is needed here
Even hip-hop loggers jam

Tillie has a problem. The School Talent Show audition is a week away. All of her friends are going to be performing, and she's feeling left out, lonely and desolate. She knows she loves to dance-but doesn't know how to "put it all together"! She needs help- and goes to just the right place to find it! The Town Library has all kinds of great books- maybe one of them will give her some ideas. When a strange book appears at her feet, she opens it, and guess who appears out of "Mr. Miagi's Waltzing Adventures"? Mr. Miagi needs something too- a key to open a special treasure. He and Tillie decide to help each other, and that's when the real adventures begin! On the way, Tillie learns about the elements of dance: Time, Space, and Energy, and meets many new fun friends who lend a hand. But can they help Tillie find a way to dance? And even if she does. will she make it back in time to audition for the School Talent Show?
