Lucille Chauvelin tries - with no success -, to prusuade her husband, to go dancing with her. But he cannot dance and thinks of it as stupid, too. So Lucille goes by herself, much appreciated by Claude, a friend of her husband, who was trying to date her for a long time. At the dance palace Lucille gets to know Claudes friend Max, the best dancer in Paris. They dance long into the night and continue the party in the apparment of actress Yvonne, a neighbour of the Chauvelins. Edmund, one day, visits her, in order to revenge his wife. And she wants to revenge Edmund with Max. But finally there is a happy end, Edmund learns to dance, and the couple is happier than ever before.
