Apologies to Dirty Dancing, but here are 10 Movie Dances, not group dances, but one on one romantic dances that are sure to inspire. These dances include husband and wife, beauty and beast, beast and beast. These are the two-person dances that will live forever!
Kenneth Branagh and Helena Bonham Carter
Haunting, disturbing and heartbreaking, Dr. Frankenstein trying to bring his dear Elizabeth back by dancing with her even though she is a monster already.
9. Beauty Shop
Alicia Silverstone and Bryce Wilson
Funniest character twist, the only white girl working in the beauty shop ends up booty dancing better than anyone else.
Christina Ricci and Hank Harris
A genuinely sweet moment in a darkly hilarious comedy, beautiful music and a nice dance. A sorority girl dancing with her mentally challenged dream date.
7. Scent of Woman
Al Pacino and Gabrielle Anwar
Al Pacino coaxes a lovely young lady into dancing the tango during a lunch encounter. The fact that he is blind and she is a stranger adds to the beauty of this moment and the dance.
6. She’s All That
Rachel Leigh Cook and Freddy Prinze Junior
At the end of the night of the prom, these two lovebirds resolve their problems and end up dancing in her backyard, her father lighting it up from the inside and they get their first dance with each other the whole night.
Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey
Giselle and Robert share a magical dance to John Mclaughlin’s ‘So Close’ in a huge ballroom full of other dancing couples, both of them wanting the same happy ending, and the whole scene is like a flashback to classic Disney moments.
4. Beauty and The Beast
Belle and Beast
Who ever thought a giant wolf man and his slave girl in a golden dress dancing to a song sung by a teapot could be so beautiful and incredibly romantic?
3. Mr. And Mrs. Smith
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
The Assassin’s Tango is an appropriate song title for this scene, Angelina in a killer black dress, Brad in a dapper tux, both threatening each other cheek to cheek and disarming each other in the sexiest ways possible before getting rough with each other, kicking shins, stomping on feet and slamming one another into a mirrored wall.
2. Pulp Fiction
Uma Thurman and John Travolta
A thug and another man’s wife dance the night away in a tacky fifties imitation diner, and end up taking home the Twist Contest trophy. Bare feet and immortal moves make this movie dance scene an instant classic.
Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie
After taking a bite out of a poisoned peach our heroine is transported into a masquerade dream world in which she dances with and is almost seduced into oblivion by her mysterious tormentor, eventually she snaps out of it and literally shatters the world apart and returns to reality. But the gorgeous scene and haunting use of Bowie’s ‘As The World Falls Down’ stays with all lovers of this movie for life.
