Storyline

The Dance features three couples whose stories are entwined together at a dance. Harvard student Cameron reluctantly agrees to take a break from his busy student life and go to a dance organized by his English literature professor, Charles Gordon. Cameron finds the nerve to ask his older brother's ex-girlfriend Zoe, a beautiful, focused and rather intimidating dance student. Zoe, with some trepidation, accepts the offer but the two only stay at the dance long enough to make Cameron's ex-girlfriend jealous. Meanwhile, bachelor Howard, a witty, successful and career-obsessed day trader gets pressed into acting as emcee for the dance. His date is Alyson, a sweet, kind-hearted single mother of two who is really excited about her first post-divorce date. At first she shrugs off Howard's insensitive and sarcastic wit, but when it hits too close to home, Alyson confronts him about it. When he's teaching at school, Charles is the ultimate genius on romance and Shakespeare. But at home, he ... Written by Anonymous

One sweet dance it is, Mormon style, romance fans will enjoy it
7 December 2011 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Professor Charles Gordon (Michael Flynn) teaches English at an east coast college. One day in class, he discusses, with his rapt students, various love themes expressed in some of Shakespeare's plays. But, at home, he and his wife, Laura (Joyce Cohen) are having trouble with communication and affection, lately. Can he rekindle a spark? Perhaps, and that is why he plans a dance for area folks at a Mormon church/temple. Also attending the dance are two other newly-formed couples. Cameron, a serious student, has endured a recent break-up with his girlfriend and is still hurting. Nevertheless, he asks beautiful Zoe to "step out" with him at the event. Zoe, for her part, has also has a disagreeable ending to a past relationship yet agrees to go. Finally, a successful businessman, Howard (Scott Christopher), who runs his own investment firm at his home, has asked lovely Alyson (Monique Lanier) to be his date. Charles has asked Howard to be the host for the dance and, therefore, he needs a partner. Although she doesn't know Howie well, Alyson is making her first steps back into circulation after a nightmare marriage and divorce left her a single mother to two children. So, is romance ahead for any of these twosomes? Natch! But, the course is not always smooth, for each person has some serious baggage and personality quirks that may be difficult to overcome. Then, again, won't it be fun to see how it turns out? This is a sweet film with plenty of romance. Its very attractive and capable stars are most winning, although their names are not familiar. Sets and costumes are also very eye-catching. The script has a few awkward lines and, occasionally, takes a while to get to the heart of a matter. But, the direction keeps the tale moving along at a good pace. One note is that it is never stated but the couples are Mormons; however, this should be no impediment to any fans of light romance, whatever their religious views. So, by all means, take steps to get into this Dance.
