Got To Dance (The movie edition)

I don't know if I've ever mentioned it, only probably about a hundred times, but I'm a big lover of dance. I always wish I'd done more dancing when I was younger and I cannot resist an amazing dance scene in a music video or a film. I often wile away the hours watching my favourite videos on YouTube. 

It's a dull, rainy day today so I thought I'd cheer myself up by watching one of my absolute favourite dance routines, Ann Reinking in the film Annie. 

She was one of my absolute idols in this film, I wanted to be Grace when I grew up. Sadly, it didn't happen. Just see the way she moves with such elegance, what a lady.

The next dance is one that cannot fail to cheer you up on a miserable day like today. The closing scene from Footloose.

Go Kevin Go!!!

My favourite ever film is Saturday Night Fever and this dance routine inspired the first dance at our wedding.

Yes, I did dance to the BeeGees.

There has to be a Fame routine in here somewhere and whilst my favourites are from the Kids from Fame TV series, this is a good'un.

Irene Cara was fab wasn't she?!

Ok, so I know that the story lines and the acting are pretty rubbish but one thing that you cannot deny - the dancing in the Step Up films is AWESOME.

I can't get enough of Step Up 3D which is my favourite so far.

So there it is, just some of my favourite dance scenes from movies. I hope that it brightened your day today, it certainly brightened mine. Feel free to leave a comment and/or link to one of your favourite dance scenes, I know there are some notable absences here in the form of Dirty Dancing and Grease, but they go without saying don't they?
