The Dancing Master follows Alec Valcourt when he moves his mother and sister from London for reasons unknown to the residences of Devonshire. Alec looks to start a dancing school in Devonshire, but this hope is squashed when he discovers that the town’s matriarch, Mrs. Midwinter, has forbidden dancing. Alec, however, resolves to find a way to bring back dancing to the community with the help of Julia Midwinter, the matriarch’s flirtatious daughter. Alec and Julia both discover faults from their pasts.
