Dancing Lessons tells the story of Ever, an introverted young professor with Asperger’s Syndrome, who seeks out instruction from his neighbor, an out-of-commission Broadway dancer. As the unlikely relationship unfolds, the two make hilarious and heartwarming discoveries about themselves and each other. A quirky romantic comedy, Dancing Lessons made its world premiere at Barrington Stage Company in 2014.
