Shall We Dance?

Hailey Hartz was born to a normal family, led a normal college-student life and now works at a normal job. This normal guy created a normal family and thus has the kind of good fortune that anyone would be envious of. Nothing is unsatisfactory about his life, we would expect. But even so, Hailey believes something to change his day-to-day routine awaits him at some point down the line. One day, on his daily commute, he looks up from a train station platform to discover a ballroom dance studio. As he stares at a beautiful woman standing in the studio's window, a vague notion comes to him: What if he were to muster up a bit of courage and march right toward the door? Would his fortunes see a massive change? Piqued by this thought, and after much inner debate, Hailey sets foot inside the dance studio.

Receiving him is the "woman by the window," the instructor Ella. After she explains the lesson plans, Hailey decides to take part in a group lesson for beginners, rather than in private lessons given by Ella. After getting acquainted with the colorful collection of characters who are his lesson mates, Hailey finds himself thrust into a whole new world.


Get ready for a powerful stage show to mark the arrival of the 99th year.
Celebrating the year of a turning-point for Takarazuka Revue, this show's staging is a must-see, as it unfolds creating motifs from world dance and festivals, including the French Cancan and Rio's Carnival. Together with a diverse range of music, the "Takarasienne" sing with all their energy and they dance with gusto. We hope that everyone in the audience will be part of the energy and excitement.
