Top Film/TV Dance Scenes

Was listening to ‘Canned Heat’ by that talented gob shite Jay Kay, and it brought some great memories of one of my fave quirky films Napoleon Dynamite, and it got me thinking about film/tv dance sequences that I love. Here are my faves.

  • The Office“I sort of fused Flashdance with some MC Hammer shit” (pure class)
  • Napoleon Dynamite – Needs no explanation
  • Dirty Dancing“No one puts Baby in the corner”, Fave dance sequence is not the final one but the first one when Baby sees them ‘dirty dancing’ for the first time after helping to carry the melons.
  • West Side Story – One of my top three musicals, virtually all the dance sequences are top notch but I think this is my fave. Easy to see where the inspiration for Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad’ video came from.
  • Breakin’ – Breakdance movie that came out in the 80s. This is the obligatory ‘teaching scene’ you get in every dance movie.  Really bad acting but impressive dance moves (Jean Claude Van Damme had a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it part in this film).
  • Saturday Night Fever‘You should be dancing’. I love disco!!
  • Hair – ‘Aquarius’, One of the best opening sequences for a film/musical (my opinion). Great choreography..
