5. Shall We Dance?: I love both the Japanese original and the American remake of this great movie that celebrates married love and deals with the power of dance to revitalize every aspect of life.

4. Strictly Ballroom: Great dancing and a sweet love story makes this one a definite hit.

3. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun: This is a great one to check out a baby-faced Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt as baby-faces. The dancing is the star of this show, well-supported by the outrageous 80s-style clothing.2. Dirty Dancing: This movie has one of the greatest last scenes in a movie ever and it won an Oscar for it’s original music. By the time Baby does the lift with Patrick Swayze everyone in the roomwill say, “I’ve had the time my life.”

1. Footloose Kevin Bacon stars in Footloose. A flick all about the power of dance, and refreshingly it tackles both dance’s power for good and for evil.
