Six Dance Lessons stars Deborah Persoff as Lily Harrison and Preston Britton as Michael Minetti.
Lily Harrison hires a dance instructor to give her private dance lessons in her home. What begins as an antagonistic relationship blossoms into an intimate friendship as these two people from very different backgrounds reveal their secrets, fears, and joys while dancing the Swing, Tango, Waltz, Foxtrot, Cha-Cha, and Contemporary Dance. A comedy with music and dance, the play also addresses the serious issues of ageism and intolerance.
