More About the Piece:

By Richard Alfieri

Lily (played by Charlette Poché), an aging, formidable retiree, hires Michael (Derrick Toups) to give her dance lessons in her condo in St. Petersburg Beach, Florida. Antagonism between two very different people gives way to profound compatibility as they swing dance, tango, foxtrot, and cha-cha while sharing barbs and intimacies. During the sixth lesson, Lily reveals a closely guarded secret and Michael shares his loyalty and compassion.  At the end, it is clear that each is capable of transcending both fear and mortality.
