Tossin’ It Out There: What’s YOUR Favorite Movie Dance Scene?

This past weekend’s “Step Up Revolution” brought the subject of dancing in movies to mind, and I thought it might make for an interesting topic for discussion.

Dancing has been a part of film since its earliest days. Rudolph Valentino became a huge star by dancing the tango in “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” in 1921… and obviously dancing in films is still going strong. John Travolta is famed for his dances in “Saturday Night Fever” and “Pulp Fiction”. Chaning Tatum  in “Step Up” and “Magic Mike”. Some stars get strongly associated with dancing in movies. There’s no doubt in my mind that the extraordinary dancing in “The Artist” halped Jean Dujardin capture Oscar gold this last year…

So what’s your fave? Napolean Dynamite and his D-Qwon’s Dance Moves? Or Nina’s ballet performances in “Black Swan”? Perhaps you’re old school and prefer some Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers? Whatever it is, let’s hear it! What’s YOUR Favorite dance in the movies?

  1. Great post, I liked the dancing in Black Swan. One scene that no one has mentioned is from a film called Women in Love. In the scene, Glenda Jackson dances unfrigtened before a herd of cattle. It is a strange and well executed scene.

    • LOL. I havent seen that. I’ll take your word that its well executed, Vinnie. I dont think I need to SEE it though to confirm it’s strange. LOL. “dances unfrigtened before a herd of cattle” Sounds a little offbeat, to me. :D
