It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of music and dance. If I ever became famous (or, more likely, infamous), I'd be begging my agent to get me a stint on Strictly Come Dancing. I'd even be OK with being paired with Anton du Beke!
I saw Tara share this video on Facebook recently and it supports a theory I have which suggests that any choreography changes its context if danced to music from a different genre. Someone has taken an enormous amount of time to showcase this by stitching these dance scenes from various movies together and it needs to be enjoyed.
It's a proper 'feel good' clip so... LET'S DAAAAAAAAAAANCE!!
And just in case you were wondering, here are the films featured in the clip: A Knights Tale, Airplane, American Pie, Austin Powers, Billy Elliot, Blue Skies, Clerks 2, Coyote Ugly, Dirty Dancing, Fame, Fame 2009, Flashdance, Footloose, Get Smart, Grease, Happy Feet, High Fidelity, High School Musical, Honey, Mamma Mia, Mary Poppins, Mask of Zorro, Moonwalker, Moulin Rouge, Perfect, Phantom of the Opera, Pulp Fiction, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Saturday Night Fever, Save the Last Dance, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Singing in the Rain, Step Up, Step Up 2, Strictly Ballroom, True Lies, West Side Story, White Nights, Wild Hogs.
P.S. If you like this then you'll LOVE 'What Can We Learn From Dance Scenes In Movies?' that I wrote not too long ago.
