This is a love story about an extraordinary young couple who put Latin dance on the map at New York's Palladium. Turning the world of ballroom dancing and the nightlife in the city upside down, they went on to be the highest paid dance duo in the world, opening acts for numerous celebrities. Many of them became lifelong friends, particularly Sammy Davis Jr. whose close relationship with Augie and Margo forms an integral part of the story. Their memories and insights into some of the world's icons are sometimes hilarious, sometimes surprising, sometimes sad or tender; but always revealing.
