This light hearted musical-comedy is about the attempts of eight amateurs from disparate backgrounds who come together in a weekly class in order to overcome their inhibitions and “left feet”to learn to tap dance. The loveable troupe of misfits include the eager to please Lynne, the bird like Dorothy, the confident Maxine, the shy Geoffrey, the timid Andy, the bubbly
Sylvia, the neat and proper Vera and the larger than life Rose, all searching for something. Guided by their teacher Mavis, a former professional chorus girl, and aided by their grumpy pianist Mrs Fraser, we see their road to self discovery and learn that their weekly classes are so much more than learning to dance, they are a lifeline for them all.
