You think you can dance? So do Toni and Tasi, the ballroom dancing Campari sisters. Only problem is, they’ve each got a secret that’s dying to be let out. Tasi is the sequined drama queen, sick of the spotlight, while mousy Toni is the stand-in, the wallflower pizza waitress who’s never been kissed—although she has her eye on Mona, a girl with rhythm of her own.

The sisters have some big dancing shoes to fill, courtesy of the ultimate stage mom, Cheri (US Latin Ballroom Champ Melanie LaPatin). Thank the cha-cha gods for Toni’s pirouetting best friend, Cedric (Benji Schwimmer, who swept Season Two of So You Think You Can Dance, currently Paula Abdul’s Artistic Director), who keeps the family on an even keel and pushes Toni to show the ballroom world her true colors. When Tasi’s secret explodes, Toni sees her chance to sashay in with cutie Mona in tow. They take the lead in the big ballroom competition, challenging everyone and paving the way for queer dance champs to come.

Through it all, the family twirls through life, learning new steps along the way. Each scene is choreographed to a T, including an epically sexy supermarket sequence, complete with break dancing in the produce section and a shopping cart cabaret. A killer-cute soundtrack and sassy design make sure Leading Ladies will charm the pas-de-deux right off you.
