Ursula and Ricardo are practicing for a big water ballet championship. But when the pool decides not to allow bears in, Ricardo finds a new partner. Ursula goes to the neighborhood pond to swim and meets some other bears and their water ballet partners. They all practice together, and on the day of the championship they sneak into the pool in disguise. Then, after all the other teams have gone, they take off their costumes and perform their routine. They bow and then leave. Afterwards, the pool decides that they shouldn't exclude bears and the team starts to prepare for the next championship.
