Dance Dance Danseur Synopsis
Junpei Murao, a second-year junior high school student, was fascinated by ballet when he was young but gave up on that dream after his father’s death when he decided to act more “masculine”. One day, his classmate Miyako finds out about Junpei’s interest in ballet and invites him to dance together in her mother’s studio.
What appears in front of Junpei in the studio is the ballet genius, Ruo Mori, who currently lives with Miyako’s family. Junpei is overwhelmed with the difference in the ability and things start getting tense. However, Ruo is also oddly inspired by Junpei and new heights appear in front of them…
