Dancing Lessons centers on Ever, a young professor with Asperger’s syndrome, who seeks the instruction of a dancer to learn enough about dancing to survive an awards dinner.

As their relationship unfolds, they’re both caught off-guard by the discoveries—both hilarious and heartwarming—that they make about each other and about themselves.
