The third L.A. Story, CHROME is a deep dive into the world of a semi-pro dancer. Michelle came to L.A. after training all her life as a dancer, hoping for a professional career. 10+ years on, she’s working at Enterprise and about to be promoted to manager. But on her own time, she’s a principal in the Underground Cabaret, producing and performing in shows in Hollywood. Her specialty: aerial pole dance.
Dmitri is a ballroom professional with his own studio in West Hollywood. He meets Michelle through mutual friends, and offers her intensive coaching in ballroom … if she’ll compete as his new partner. Michelle is up for the challenge; she respects Dmitri and knows - after a Cabaret number they’ve done together - that she can work with him. But ballroom?
After a month of coaching and rehearsal, Dmitri sends Michelle to his friend Kenji for a competition ballgown. And then things get really complicated.
