Lily Harrison is a formidable woman. As the wife of a Southern Baptist Minister she holds strong in her values. When she hires Michael Minetti to give her six dance lessons over the course of six weeks, she does not immediately care for him. However, as they dance their relationship blossoms into an intimate friendship and they share their deepest secrets with one another. Audiences will enjoy this lovely comedy with music and dance, including swing, tango, foxtrot, and cha-cha!
