Detroit Performs caught up with the Jewish Ensemble Theatre in West Bloomfield – also known as “The JET” – while rehearsing for the play “Dancing Lessons,” about a professor with Asperger’s who seeks dancing lessons from his neighbor, a former Broadway performer.

You can watch our segment on The JET’s production of “Dancing Lessons” from our upcoming season of Detroit Performs below.
Two complicated people reveal wonders of the heart when Jewish Ensemble Theatre presents Dancing Lessons by Mark St. Germain. The romantic comedy opens Thursday, March 24 and runs on select dates through Sunday, April 17 at the Aaron DeRoy Theatre on the First Floor of the West Bloomfield JCC. For tickets, click here.
Dancing Lessons tells the story of Ever Montgomery and his neighbor, Senga Quinn. Ever is a professor who seeks dancing lessons from Senga–who lives downstairs and is indefinitely sidelined from her career. Although the arrangement seems simple enough, the complications that arise from these challenged personalities forge the bond that buoys this sparkling new play into the heart of everyone who has seen it.
