This feature documentary is an inspirational look at the world of Pro-Am Ballroom dancing as seen through the personal stories of two amateurs and two professionals. It is 'Dancing with the Stars' with real life people. Lydia saw an ad in the local paper for dance lessons that would lead her to meet Angelo an over-sized dance instructor that would change her life forever. John has danced since he was six years old before burning out as top-flight professional only to rediscover his love of dancing while being a judge and a teacher. Tilly is ninety-one years old and is inspired to keep on living after the tragic loss of her daughter who leaves her a trust fund allowing her to continue to dance. Beautiful Larinda discovered her destiny while dancing with a complete stranger in college and now she not only teaches amateur men but also coaches a championship college ballroom team. These four stories are woven around the ins and outs and the ups and downs of real life ballroom dance competitions that take place all over the country every weekend. We hear from judges, teachers, organizers, hairdressers, DJ's, MC's and mostly from the dancers themselves who describe what its like to be in their shoes. 'I Can Dance' takes you into a wonderful carnival-like world full of great dancing and wonderful characters.
