Whitney: Fat Girl Dancing follows the exploits of Whitney Thore who weighs an incredible 27 stone, while standing just over 1.5 metres. Not long ago, she was a slight 50kg dancer. However, after being diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, she gained more than 45kg in just nine months - and because of the disorder, the weight gain only continued to get worse. But when her self-choreographed performance of, ‘A Fat Girl Dancing’, became an overnight sensation, she was plucked from obscurity and her life was turned upside down. With a new, fresh outlook on everything, Whitney is making wholesale changes in her life: she's dating more than ever before, pursuing an aggressive dance schedule despite her weight, and trying to make a name for herself in a world that judges people for their size.
