Today we delve into the pantheon of film history to uncover some of the truly great dance sequences over the years.

Whether it involves a sprinkling of glitter, a formidable pairing or simply one hell of a good time, these toe-tapping, jazz-hand-inducing moments are sure to make you dance in the aisles and put a smile on your face.

 Singin’ in The Rain

Singin' in The Rain

We all know it’s a pretty difficult task to dance without a signature tune playing in the background, and 1952’s Singin’ In The Rain provided the perfect setup, with the trio of Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor strutting their stuff to the classic song ‘Good Morning’.

Combining orchestral greatness with a wonderful and spirited tap-dancing routine, the ‘Good Morning’ segment is a stand-out moment within a film littered with awe and wonderment, with the rapport between the trio clear and the sheer genius of the choreography shining. Utilising props from every section of the environment, we are witness to one of the greatest dance sequences still to ever be committed to celluloid, and it’s one that never fails to brighten up the day.


Pulp Fiction dance

Pulp Fiction

Quentin Tarantino is a man known for his specific style of filmmaking and, of course, his inspired use of music within his esteemed film catalogue. With Pulp Fiction, he took a daring turn as he turned to the medium of dance, in a moment which sees John Travolta’s Vincent Vega and Uma Thurman’s Mia Wallace take to the dance floor and strut their stuff.

The 1994 film, serving up iconic moments aplenty, sizzled upon Thurman and Travolta hitting the floor, with Chuck Berry’s ‘You Never Can Tell’ as the catalyst for Travolta to once again showcase his moves, following the likes of Grease and Saturday Night Fever. Providing a momentary respite from the violence and brutality of the Tarantino world we have been transported into, the execution of the Twist from the pair is both seductive and staggeringly surreal, lending to the magic of Tarantino’s direction.


Grease

Grease

It’s always a tough decision to pick a top dance moment from a musical, purely for the fact that there are always a wealth to choose from. For Grease, a film that still captivates audiences to this day, the one scene that stands out from the crowd is that in which the men of the picture take centre stage and prove that the T-Birds are indeed the top dogs in town.

With John Travolta’s Danny the catalyst, the group of teens soon head into full swing as the dance moves come from all directions in what is still a hugely recognised dance number in many a club to this day. Be honest, you’ve done the actions in the club…


Dirty Dancing

Dirty Dancing

The iconic line, “Nobody puts baby in the corner” is just the beginning at the late Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey proved in the ultimate dance sequence to end one of the greatest dance/romance movies of all time.

Hitting all the right notes to ‘I’ve Had The Time Of My Life’, the dancefloor sizzles to the moves of skilled dancer Johnny as he witnesses Baby blossom all before lifting her high in the air for that all-important star moment. Never has a movie dance shot looked so good.
