The ocean is filled with music. The sharks, Shayla and Santiago, search out the source of the beats and have a dance party!

Story Begins: 10:52
Rockin’ Sharks Excerpt:
Brilliantly blue waters surrounded Shayla shark as she swam through the quiet morning waters. Sunlight flickered above her as it filtered through the waves onto the graceful shark. Feeling a little cool, Shayla swam up into the bright warm water. Peace filled the ocean today. Shayla admired the acrobatics of a school of yellow fin tuna. They moved together to the right and left. The shark watched as the swiftly moving fish formed a swirling ball. There scales sparkled, reflecting the sunlight.
In an instant the morning’s peace was broken as Santiago shark shouted, “Good Morning Shayla!”
Shayla smiled and said, “Good morning Santiago.”
“What are you up to today?” Santiago asked the other shark.
