In 1987, Michael Daluz, a black U.S. Army veteran and college student with a 3.6 GPA, is nearly beaten to death by a mob of white men as he and his friends leave a local off-campus bar. His act of self-defense, and the arrest and imprisonment that follow, will change his life forever.

Harboring a hate, Daluz enters prison in 1988. During his incarceration, he witnesses a miracle and experiences an inner transformation. But his misfortunes are not behind him, and his faith in God prepares him for life-altering battles. A near-fatal, work-related accident leaves him severely injured. Daluz challenges his employer in a civil lawsuit while he fights for custody of his young daughter, Bella, and he doggedly pursues his doctorial education.

During a time in his life, Daluz had done it all. He lived the champagne-popping lifestyle, visited fancy night clubs, owned a nice house, and drove expensive cars. But during his twenty-year journey, he realizes what is important. Based on true events, You Gotta Dance is one mans story of spiritual awakening in the face of crushing hardship.
