Dance Doctor is a heartwarming series where renowned dance instructor Gustavo Ferman coaches couples through the complicated steps of dance, love and weddings before they walk down the aisle to perform their first dance together.
Get ready to ride the emotional roller coaster of weddings as couples seek out the ‘Dance Doctor’ to choreograph their first steps in dance and marriage. Our real-life participants come from all walks of life but have one thing in common – no one wants their first dance to be a disaster! That’s why they book their sessions with the ‘Dance Doctor’, renowned Vancouver dancer, choreographer and actor Gustavo Ferman, who helps them prepare for their big day by prescribing the best medicine he knows… learning how to live and love, through dance.
In each episode, we follow the real-life wedding journey’s of two couples, inside and outside the dance studio. The first couple is just beginning their wedding and dance preparations. The second couple, established in the previous episode, returns to take the final steps with their dance, wedding, menu, reception and honeymoon, before walking down the aisle. Through the rhythm of their dance and the watchful eye of the Dance Doctor, we intimately document each couples growing sense of excitement, stress and anxiety, on and off the dance floor, as they integrate their families and prepare for a new life together. At the end of each episode, we’re all invited to their wedding (or big event) to observe as Gustavo anxiously watches his students say “I do” before performing their first dance together.
