What Happens at Salsa...

Episode 1 of 4

After treatment for cancer, Camille is still with Marco planning a new life. With Natasha Little and Camille Coduri. From 2016.

A second series of the sitcom about three women who embrace the world of salsa while adjusting to life after cancer.

Jill has left her husband and son to live at her new boyfriends' parent's house, Camille is planning a huge life change and Chippy has a new live-in wannabe step-father in the shape of Gordon from their salsa class.

In the first episode Camille is still with Marco and reveals their plan to start a new life together, Jill is struggling with jealousy and living with Tim's parents, Chippy discovers what Tinder can bring and Gordon takes advantage of the opportunities his new salsa role offers.

The series is not about cancer, but about life after cancer, how you cope the changes in your outlook, your desires and your expectations. It's also about how other people cope with the change in you.
