9 Best Movies about Dancing ...


Whenever I am looking for a movie to watch, I tend to gravitate towards movies about dancing.

Something about watching people break into dance to show their feelings, or even just show off their talents, is super entertaining for me.

There are so many movies about dancing that show off so many different types of dancing.3

Here is a list of a few of my top dancing movies, although it was hard to pick with so many incredible choices.

1. Dirty Dancing

So I thought I’d start this list on movies about dancing with one of the most popular movie about dancing, Dirty Dancing.

The classic moves, Patrick Swazye making me swoon, and the ever popular “I Had The Time Of My Life” lift.

This is probably the go-to movie about dancing for most people…and that’s perfectly acceptable.

2. Step up

Step Up started an entire series of dance movies I am in love with.

I have noticed that as the movies go on, they become less about the story and more about dancing, but I am sort of okay with it.

The movies are produced and directed by the same people who make So You Think You Can Dance, so I love seeing all of my favorite dancers from the show making it into movies and showing off their skills.2

3. Black Swan

This movie became widely popular for its twisted plot and risqué scenes with Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that is has incredible dancing in it.

Most movies about dancing don’t usually feature ballet, which is why Black Swan stood out to me so much.

There is no denying that the movie features top notch dancing and really shows the struggle of the life of a ballerina.
