When Dan Leonardi, a YMCA employee in Canton, Ohio, discovers the bank is foreclosing on his father's house, his girlfriend Ally enters him in a lucrative reality show dance competition to pay off the mortgage.  As Dan excels and finds himself sucked into internet super-stardom with Vanessa, his glamorous and scheming dance partner, the distance between him and Ally grows, and Dan is forced to re-evaluate his new life without the woman responsible for his success.  Part dance musical, part reality show take-down and part classic romantic comedy, Dancing With The Nobodies is a tale of one man's search for love and redemption in the chasm between Ohio and Hollywood.
