Crunchyroll describes Dance Dance Danseur as:
Danseur noble — a ballet dancer qualified to dance the role of the prince.
Second-year junior high school student Junpei Murao was fascinated by ballet as a boy, but gave up on dancing after his father’s death, as he had to become a man. However, one day, a beautiful transfer student named Godai Miyako appears before him.
Miyako takes notice in Junpei’s love of ballet and invites him to dance with her. Along with Miyako’s cousin Mori Ruou, he begins his career as a full-fledged ballet dancer, with the aim of becoming the world’s best dancer — the Danseur noble! Only those who have sacrificed everything are permitted to stand in the beautiful and harsh world of classical ballet.
What will be the fate of a total beginner like Junpei?!
