Storyline

'The Dance' features three couples whose stories are entwined 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 former 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 old girlfriend jealous. Meanwhile, bachelor Howard, a witty, successful and career-obsessed day trader gets pressed into acting as M.C. 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 seems ... Written by Anonymous

An Intelligent Script Sets This One Apart!
1 March 2008 | by (Salt Lake City) – See all my reviews

The big fault of most low budget, independent films is not their lack of funds -- it's their lack of a well worked out script that has something to say. Well, "The Dance" is way above the average in the writing department. Based on the stageplay by Carol Lynn Pearson, it has been well worked out by director McKay Daines for the screen. The story explores three couples whose lives are enriched during one evening at a church dance social. The performances are first rate and the cinematography very striking. The film is romantic,thought provoking and very entertaining. This is certainly one of the best of the recent films made by LDS filmmakers. Certainly worth picking up on DVD!
