For some reason, I feel dance-y today, and started thinking about my favorite dance scenes in movies.
I saw Flashdance when I was 18, and Alex, Jennifer Beals' character in the movie, was 18. Oh, how I wanted to live in a loft and dance and have a butt like this. Please refer to my life, where none of that ever happened.
Sometimes I get water on me, so. What a feeling!
Tell me you don't do the V over your eyes thing whenever you dance now. "I do believe Marsellus Wallace, my husband, your boss, told you to take ME out and do WHATEVER I WANTED. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good."
PEE WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE
The white shoes. As soon as I see the white shoes I know I will never be sad again. Also? Tequila.
Because this is the kind of Prime Minister I'd be.
IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE
"They're cheering! We must be good!" Story of my life.
Not a movie at all. But this is still my favorite thing anyone ever did.
I carried a watermelon.
I saw that movie with my grandparents. After my initial mortification, I loved this scene.
PRETTY IN PINK
I never understood why she didn't like Duckie and stuck with Blaine.
PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT
I actually think of this scene often when I write write write a post, and crack myself up, and get all sweaty with the effort, and...four comments. Okay, I haven't gotten just four comments since 2007. Still. You know what I mean.
This isn't even much of a dance scene, but I love it. That whole movie haunts me, really. I know I've shown you this scene before:
I guess I just like that movie.
Anyway, those are my favorite dance scenes from movies. Are there any you like?
