A performance of AJT Showcased The Actual Dance, a love story told through the eyes and heart of a Jewish husband as he struggles with what everyone expects to be his wife’s losing battle with breast cancer. The story takes the audience on an emotional and uplifting journey that rewards them with an unexpected happy ending, and a universal, life-affirming lesson of hope and faith. The Actual Dance will make you laugh, cry and then cheer!
