Jo Bryant at Chronicles of Illusions recently listed her favorite dance scenes. I too love great dancing and musicals. So without even considering the standard greatest (Singing in the Rain, West Side Story, and so on), here is a few of my favorites.
John Travolta in Michael, dancing to Aretha Franklin’s Chain of Fools.
Amanda Schull and Ethan Stiefel in the final dance scene in Center Stage.
Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gregory Hines in White Nights.
Julia Stiles in Save the Last Dance.
Of course, there are more, but it’s late and I’m tired after spending 3 hours trying to figure out how to add videos.
