Movies. They make us laugh, they make us cry, they make us DANCE? That’s right. Sometimes a movie is just so much fun they have to dance in the middle of it. Audiences love it and depending on who you have dancing you could a real Hollywood moment on your hands. Don’t trust me? Then check out these great movie moments that get your feet tapping!
Pulp Fiction- The Twist
Man, John Travolta’s dance moves to Chuck Berry’s “You Never Can Tell” were so slick, you hardly notice that horrible pony tail. Add in a little coked up Uma Thurman and we’ve got Twist Champions writing all over this scene. Just don’t fast forward. It goes really down hill after that.
Young Frankenstein- Putting on The Ritz
Props to Gene Wilder (Young Frankenstein) for not only getting a corpse to reanimate and come alive but then get it to wear a tuxedo and dance on stage. And he’s got some pretty good moves for a dead guy. I’ve been to clubs before where guys WISHED they moved half as good as this zombie. We should all be taking lessons.
Little Miss Sunshine- Super Freak
Sure, Little Olive’s “Super Freak” routine is a knock on the way pageants sexualize young girls, but it’s also where her messed up family comes together to and finally supports her. It’s funny, it’s sweet and it reminds us all of why Steve Carrell is the box office giant he is today.
Pee Wee’s Big Adventure – Tequila
Pee-Wee’s a rebel. A loner. Remember that Dottie. He’s on the a mission to find his lost bike. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have time to impress a whole biker gang with his awesome platform shoes. Who knew such a simple dance move would lit crowds on fire when it hit theaters.
Risky Business- Old Time Rock N’ Roll
The Quintessential dance scene in all of Hollywood is the scene in Risky Business where Tom Cruise slides across the floor is underwear. Who hasn’t done that as a teenager when their parents are out of town? This scene has been parodied so many times it’s impossible to keep count and it shot Tom Cruise into the “Hunk Hall Of Fame”.
