Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Movie Freebie — top ten all time favorite movies, top ten foreign films, top ten rom-coms, top ten 90’s movies, top ten action flicks, top ten tear-jerkers, top ten movies your favorite actor/actress is in, top ten movies with PoC leads, etc. etc.). My topic for this Freebie will be: My Ten Favorite Dance Movies. Some of these might be new to you youngins. 😉
Let’s get right down to the fun! The link to the YouTube videos are the movie trailers. To access the films themselves, try AvoidCensorship.org.
1. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun was my favorite movie FOREVER. I still love it!
2. Dirty Dancing
I’m a HUGE Dirty Dancing fan. My BFF introduced me to it in high school and I’ve watched it SO many times. We even saw the Broadway musical version.
Sorry 2014 version, the original 1984 version is still my favorite. Can’t beat Kevin Bacon cutting loose in a warehouse.
Gotta love Jennifer Beals in her 80’s dance outfits!
I’m sad to admit it, but I didn’t come across Breakin’ until last year. It’s a real gem.
6. Step Up
Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan. Bam! Can’t deny their real-life chemistry.
7. Strictly Ballroom
Gosh, this one is just fun.
8. Magic Mike
I swear I only watched it for the plot! 😉 The dancing was magical, though.
9. Step Up 3D
All of the Step Up movies are fun, but this one is my favorite after the original.
10. Pitch Perfect
I know, I know. It was more a singing movie than a dance movie, but you have to admit there were some pretty sweet dance moves involved.
