The series aired on PBS in the United States, where it was presented by Connecticut Public Television; and can currently be seen on Nick Jr. in the UK and PBS Kids Sprout in the US.

A computer-animated revival, Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps, premiered on PBS stations in September 2009. Consisting of 80 stories, it is directed by Davis Doi and animated at SD Entertainment.
