This is a comedy about ten women and one man trying to conquer their inhibitions and an overabundance of left feet in a seedy dance studio in North London. An ex professional performer tries her hardest to teach the bumbling amateurs some dancing skills for an upcoming recital, but sometimes it's hard for Mavis, the instructor, to get her pupils to stop quarrelling long enough to dance. Her students are truly a hilarious, motley but loveable crew who finally triumph at their recital
