He loves his family, which includes his wife Beverly, but their combined busy schedules and getting caught in a rut after two decades of marriage has left him feeling unfulfilled. While taking the el train home every night, he notices the same young, beautiful contemplative woman staring out of one of the windows of Miss Mitzi’s Dance Studio, which specializes in ballroom. He is intrigued enough with her beauty and sadness to go in one evening on his way home. He learns that she is Paulina, one of the instructors and a former world class ballroom dancer. Because of her, he signs up for beginner group dance lessons, regardless of them being taught by Miss Mitzi herself, and not Paulina. As time progresses, John gets caught up in the lives of those at Miss Mitzi’s: his two fellow classmates – overweight Vern who wants to learn to dance for his upcoming wedding, and Chic, who wants to impress the ladies – and two of the studio’s competitive amateurs, opinionated and brash Bobbie, who is looking for a dance partner, and one person who surprises John and who just wants to be able to show his true colors to the world while hiding under a mask. But as Paulina slowly allows herself to be involved in their lives as well, despite she vowing not to fraternize with the students, John comes to the spoken realization of what he was looking for when he first spotted Paulina in the window. Similarly, each of those at the dance studio are looking for their small place in life with the right person, Paulina included. John may not get the happy ending that he wants as Beverly, based on circumstances, believes he is having an affair.
Plot: Upon first sight of a beautiful instructor, a bored and overworked estate lawyer signs up for ballroom dancing lessons.

Could he be that faithful to his marriage and his wife?
John Clark (Richard Gere) is actually a hypocrite that has been forced to maintain his faithfulness to his wife and his deadbeat marriage, if Paulina (Jennifer Lopez ) willingly shows that she’s attracted to him and is actually in love with him. I think if Paulina says she loves him, John Clark will immediately throw away anything in his life, his marriage, his parenthood, even his career. But the screenplay cunningly not allow such situation to happen, so in the end, he cannot but to reinstate his love and faithfulness to his wife.
Don’t be fooled by the phony outlook of this movie, you have to admit that this guy is actually a hypocrite. It’s actually a triangle intertwined situation among this guy, the dancer and his wife. He is forced to go back to his wife since the dancer only gives him an obscure and uncertain signal that makes him retreat back to his boring marriage and his lifestyle. If the dancer clearly tell him that she also has the feelings about him and asks him to be her lover, I think this guy will throw anything away and jump into her embrace. This guy is not only a hypocrite but also a coward who has no guts to change his trapped marriage.
Shall We Dance? Of Course !
What a match-up of performers! Richard Gere with Susan Sarandon – very strange initially, but very successful. While we typically identify Mr. Gere with younger, more stereotypically “beautiful” actors, his pairing with Ms. Sarandon was most fitting with his role in this film.
As he attempted to connect with himself, the natural entry of Jennifer Lopez into his life was perfect. It was great to see the two characters go from one end of the spectrum to another – hoping to see it go all the way. While initially disappointing (really wanted to see them together), it was a very do-able end result.
Of course, the dancing and music were a great focal point to the story -I loved seeing Mr. Gere and Ms. Lopez doing their “thing.” The statistics of the voting on this site for this film were most puzzling. One can only surmise that there were a great many voters who lack a great deal of romance in their souls. Further, as many voters must have lacked an appreciation of great music and dancing.
Clearly, one of the most enjoyable films of 2004.
