Episode 1

Series following choreographer Jack Murphy, as he attempts to realise his dream to reopen the Bolton Palais for one night only and make ballroom a national pastime once more.

Jack Murphy is choreographer to the stars. Now he is swapping movie sets for Bolton, home to the once glorious dance hall, the Palais de Danse. From 1928 to the 1960s, ballroom was a national pastime, but can it be again? Jack tracks down the original Palais patrons, now in their 70s, and his dream to reopen the Bolton Palais for one night only is met with scepticism and lashings of Lancashire wit. His big idea to get a new generation to dance cheek to cheek involves getting his Bolton pensioners to dance in front of 20,000 footie fans... But can a group who haven't danced in half a century impress the Bolton home crowd?
