After tap class, Charli ditches her painful dance shoes in the garbage. Her best friend Wilbur, an imposing, 130-pound Bernese Mountain Dog, fishes the shoes out of the trash, puts them on and brings to life his dream of being a dancer. A dog in tap shoes? This is highly unexpected! Charli quickly realizes that while it isn't her dream to be a dancer, it is Wilbur's, and she can help make his fantasy a reality. She helps him perform on the neighborhood sidewalk. He dances for the clapping kids at the park. But will Charli's help be enough for Wilbur to land center stage on Broadway? Whimsically inspired by the seven-year-old author and her mother, Charli and Carrie Cecil brought to life an inspiring, comedic story about never giving up and following your dreams even when you may not fit in. A fun adventure that kids - and their parents - and anyone who has ever dreamed big are sure to love.
