Dancing. It’s one of America’s most popular pastimes, and certainly one of our favorite things to do! Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, you’ve probably seen movies before that have dancing in them. Maybe upon viewing you said “I wish I could do that!” or maybe you haven’t, but there’s still no denying that choreographed dances in movies offer quite the entertainment value.
At Socialsport Dance Club, we teach private ballroom dance lessons to people in Horsham, PA, as well as other local areas. If you’ve ever wanted to dance like they do in showbiz, you can come to us! In this blog, we’ve chosen three of the all-time greatest dance movies to give you an idea of what to watch next. Here they are:
1. Singin’ in the Rain – This 1952 American musical comedy starred Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds as Don Lockwood and Kathy Selden. Even if you’ve never seen the movie, there’s no doubt you’ve heard of film’s most famous musical number before. You probably know what we’re talking about – the part where Gene Kelly is literally singing in the rain. Even 65 years later, this movie still sings and dances its way into the hearts of people around the world.
2. Saturday Night Fever – Nothing gives you a better idea of the disco dancing era in the 1970’s than watching Saturday Night Fever. This 1977 American musical drama starred John Travolta as Tony Manero, a young man in the working-class who spends his weekends dancing and drinking at a local dance club in Brooklyn. Featuring disco songs by the Bee Gees, Saturday Night Fever’s soundtrack is one of the best-selling soundtracks of all time.
3. Dirty Dancing – If you’re more into romantic couple’s dancing, then we’ve got the movie for you. Dirty Dancing is an American romantic drama dance film released in 1987, which stars Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in the lead roles as Johnny Castle and Baby Houseman. This coming-of-age drama documents a teenage girl’s relationship with a dance instructor she encounters on her summer vacation.
