Ballroom Bob is the seventh episode of the eighth season.


Bob has been making secret early morning trips to the school where Mrs. Percival has been giving him salsa lessons, as he wants to impress everybody at the town dance that night. Mr. Bentley calls Bob and tells him that because of the hot weather, the town hall will be too stuffy and that the dance must be held in one of Farmer Pickles’ Fields.
