Brendan Carter is a doting Dad who has watched his daughter Emma nurture her passion for dance from a very young age to the very edge of adulthood. In her Senior Year, he decides to take a major leap and join the choreographed Dads Dance; an annual event that is always the highlight of the big end-of-year recital. Its there that Brendan falls into the good graces - or clutches - of a ragtag group of fellow parents who put all sense of dignity aside to put on a show for the audience and a smile on their childrens faces - no matter the toll to their two left feet and equally fragile pride. And in the lead-up to the big event, Brendan begins to learn a lot about the healing power of community.
'Dads Dance' is a contemporary comedy-drama about the indelible bonds that sometimes form between strangers on this grand and surprising stage of life - one where comedy and poignancy carry equal weight - and where Brendan begins to understand that true wealth is measured not in the treasures we keep but the memories we make.
