I Want To Dance Better At Parties

Recovering from the tragic and untimely death of his wife, Phillip Rose finds himself in middle age both a single parent and a single man. After a clumsy episode on a dance floor at a house warming party, he begins private Latin dance classes with Melissa, a young instructor. Over the course of ten dance lessons their friendship evolves, and Phillip confronts his loneliness and isolation while learning to dance the Merengue. Based on a true story this hybrid film fuses choreography, documentary and drama filmmaking to create a unique and moving portrait of a grieving man.
