Before princess of pop Britney Spears was shimmying at the 2001 VMAs with a snake, there was another reptile-wearing dancer — Salma Hayek’s character in “From Dusk Till Dawn.” In the film, she plays an exotic dancer who is really a vampire (seriously!).
What follows is one of the film’s most memorable scenes involving Salma’s sensual belly dance as a giant snake intertwines itself around her — foretelling the scary fate that awaits the bar’s patrons. Those with a fear of snakes might want to skip this particular number!
The Ending Credits of “Paddington 2”
It may seem a bit strange to see Hugh Grant in a children's movie considering his often sarcastic nature. Thankfully, though. Hugh was able to show off his surprising musical side in the sequel to the popular film, “Paddington 2.”
Playing an actor-turned-criminal named Phoenix Buchanan, Hugh performs a lengthy musical and dance number at the end of the film. Wearing a pink striped prison uniform, Hugh dances and sings rather spectacularly we must say. Who knew he had it in him?
The Passionate Dance in “The Mask of Zorro”
Even with his trademark mask, it would be hard not to see the obvious chemistry between stars Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones in the film, “The Mask of Zorro.” Though the duo’s surprisingly erotic duel may be the film’s most famous scene, their dance number is just as memorable.
In the scene, the masked vigilante named Zorro and Elena (played by Catherine Zeta-Jones) share an unbelievably passionate dance together. With the dance floor to themselves, audiences watch as the two engage in a scandalously-intimate number that resonates with audiences even today.
The Iconic Water Dance in “Flashdance”
Though the premise of “Flashdance” seems a bit far-fetched (a gorgeous and talented welder at a steel mill who moonlights as a dancer in a gentleman’s club by night), the film is considered one of the best dance movies in history.
Her audition scene set to the song “What a Feeling” is certainly memorable. However, it’s her sensual and soaking wet dance to “He’s a Dream” that has not only become a pop culture legacy but remains one of the most erotic dance scenes ever filmed.
Olive’s Performance in “Little Miss Sunshine”
“Little Miss Sunshine” is a film that surprised us in many ways. From Steve Carrell’s dramatic performance to the film’s sad yet sometimes hilarious moments. But one scene left us both smiling and in shock — Olive’s performance at the beauty pageant.
Most of us were pretty shocked at her totally-age-inappropriate routine to Rick James's “Super Freak.” However, we were soon rewarded with one of the film's most heartwarming moments when Olive’s eccentric family members joined her onstage for an awkwardly adorable dance.
