75-year-old South Florida matron Lily Harrison, unexpectedly develops a remarkable, life-changing friendship with her much younger, gay dance instructor. Michael Minetti, is a 30-year-old teacher who is assigned to Lily after she calls to request private lessons from Cunard’s Dance Studio. Cunard has the best-looking staff of any dance studio in the state. Frustrated that his Broadway career has been reduced to teaching old ladies to dance, Michael is ornery and disrespectful when he arrives at Lily’s spacious, ocean-view apartment for her first lesson. Tempers quickly flare and Lily orders him out. Michael knows he was out of line, and really needing the work, swallows his pride and asks Lily for a second chance. Surprisingly, she says yes. At first, Lily and Michael see each as stereotypes – a conservative, judgmental older woman and an immoral, untrustworthy scam artist. But as they work their way through the dances – the Swing, Tango, Waltz, Foxtrot, Cha-Cha, and Contemporary Dance – and get to know each other, Lily and Michael discover how far from the truth their initial impressions actually were. Their trust and respect grows, and by the final lesson, Lily shares with Michael her most closely guarded secret and he shares with her his greatest gifts, his loyalty and compassion.
