I love a good 'let's do the show right here' kind of moment.

I'd forgotten this scuzzy yet magnificent chunk of the original Fame - Hot Lunch Jam smile

The barn raising scene in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers - an oldie but a goodie.

The basement tango scene in Shall we dance.

Wrong movie it's Take the lead blush

FreakinScaryCaaw Thu 21-Jan-16 23:17:21

I've watched both movies so much they've melded grin

I second the barn raising scene from 7B47B. Plus Dancing in the Dark from The Band Wagon. Beautiful.

I really love the final dance in the rain in Step Up 2.

lowers the tone

All Pacino's tango in "Scent of a woman". Also the Pase Double(spelling? )to 'Perhaps Perhaps,Perhaps' scene, in 'Strictly Ballroom'.

hatters me too. Bounce by Timberland is fab.

And the ballroom scene in Beauty and the Beast. Yes it's a cartoon but they dance and there is music.

Val4 I forgot that one. That's actually mine and Dh's favourite.

Does Napoleon dynamite dancing to Jamiroquai count grin

CaveMum Fri 05-Feb-16 14:45:46

Agree with the basement tango in Take the Lead.

Also the JLo/Richard Gere tango in Shall We Dance is pretty hot, but I love that piece of music.

Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr
Shall We Dance King and I

Michael Barychnikov and Gregory Hines dance off in White Knights

Singing in the rain

bruffin Sat 06-Feb-16 22:04:28
