From Jack and Rose floating in the frigid ocean to the sketching scene, the epic blockbuster film “Titanic” has provided us with some of the most famous scenes in movie history. One of the most memorable scenes is when Rose joins Jack in a raucous party hosted by the “third-class” passengers.
Rose looks so happy to be spinning around in Jack’s arms as they dance and stomp to traditional Irish music. The giddiness and energy of the scene make audiences feel like they are right there with the characters on the doomed ship.
The Impossibly Choreographed Scene for “Another Day of Sun” in “La La Land”
In what is probably one of the most impressive opening numbers ever captured on film, one of the drivers on the congested Los Angeles highway decides to pass the time by dancing. She is soon followed by dozens of other disgruntled, yet talented, drivers.
Filmed on location on an actual highway ramp in L.A, the number took about four months to shoot and used 30 dancers to perform the film’s opening song, “Another Day of Sun.” Who knew that traffic could be so entertaining?
Slow Dance in “Romy and Michele’s Highschool Reunion”
Who can listen to Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” without thinking of this memorable scene in “Romy and Michele’s Highschool Reunion”? When their covers as post-it moguls are blown and their plan to impress their former classmates doesn’t work out, the two realize that they’ve already achieved the impossible — they have each other.
The two former outcasts join fellow outcast Sandy Frink in a slow dance to the ‘80s hit. With its fluid dance moves and a message about true friendship, it’s no wonder this scene is so memorable.
The Final Performance in “Center Stage”
Let’s face it — ballet isn’t typically associated with the word cool. But thanks to the film “Center Stage,” we learned that there are apparently bad boys in ballet too. The amazingly choreographed scenes showcased not only the incredible talent of the dancers but also touched on the character’s own personal dramas.
The film's final scene, involving a motorcycle, a risque act, and a dancer somehow managing to plié in a pair of tight leather pants (after getting off a motorcycle nonetheless), makes this scene simply sensational!
The Nicholas Brothers' Performance in “Stormy Weather”
Once described by dancing icon Fred Astaire as “the greatest dancing he had ever seen on film,” this impressive dance sequence from the film “Stormy Weather” was surprisingly unrehearsed and even more shockingly, recorded in just one take!
Dancing on tables, stages, and every other surface imaginable, tap dancing legends, the legendary tap dancing duo, the Nicholas Brothers never lose their footing as they dance to the song “Jumpin Jive.” This scene is a must-see for lovers of dance!
