PLOT - SYNOPSIS
PAPA CAN DANCE is a “nostalgic”, back in the good-old-days, program in which senior folks (or senior celebrities) between 50 years old and up, dust off and polish their long stashed away dancing / singing talent and deploy their skills on stage in front of a live studio audience, to the rhythm of 50`s and 60’s music.
During the program senior folks narrate their “dance or song stories” from their youth. They show us pictures and bring back memories as they lead us into their past and tell us about their love for vintage music, costumes, dancing and singing partners, dancing in clubs and ballrooms of the 50's and 60's, etc.
They will compete among each other, like in the good old days, in front of a live studio audience.
Each contestant will choose his or her own music or song preference that he/she will perform on stage.
They get assistance from a stylist and a choreographer.
They rehearse with a coach and partner.
The rehearsal and preparation is filmed and shown during the program.
Television programs dealing with senior folks over 50 years old are rare;
PAPA CA DANCE is therefore an exceptional entertainment program.
Not only older viewers will recall and reflect on the good memories about their time,
young viewers will also have curiosity in finding out how it was in the old days.
The spirit of the program is foremost social, funny, and pure entertainment,
which makes it a weekly series that brings good feelings to viewers.
It is delightful watching the “oldies” have fun like in the “good-old-days!”
