Who doesn’t appreciate a catchy song that actually explains how to dance? The ‘70s cult-favorite film “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is full of memorable songs and characters, but one of the movie’s most well-known songs has to be “The Time Warp”.
The song is performed by various characters as they dance to parts of the song in the film’s trademark outlandish costumes. In addition to dressing up as the characters, attempting the seemingly easy dance has become an integral part of enjoying the film. We apologize if you have “let’s do the time warp again!” stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
The Rain-Soaked Scene in “Step Up 2: The Streets”
What's cooler than an epic dance scene? How about an epic dance scene performed in the rain and dark? Like the first film in the franchise, “Step Up 2: The Streets” tells the story of a high school dancer (Andie) struggling to decide on her future.
Andie finds herself competing in Baltimore’s infamous underground dance battle known as “The Streets.” In the final and memorable scene, Andie and her dance crew duke it out in the pouring rain to screaming crowds who also don’t seem to mind the torrential downpour.
Dance Machine Dance-Off in “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen”
When you're the new girl in town, what’s the first thing you should do? Well, according to Lindsay Lohan’s character, Lola, it's to challenge the school's queen bee, Carla, played by Megan Fox. Lola signs up to battle Carla, the reigning champion dancer on the dance machine at the local arcade.
Though the scene is filled with amazing early 2000s fashion (we see you Juicy Couture tracksuit!), the two show off some pretty fancy footwork. We’d be lying if we didn’t admit that we wished we looked this cool!
The Prom Scene in “Footloose”
Footloose is not only one of the most famous dance movies, but it was also considered Kevin Bacon’s breakout role. Going against the reverend and townsfolk of a small rural town, Chicago-native Ren can’t seem to get dancing off of his mind.
Despite the film's tense moments, things get a lot more celebratory when Ren commands the fellow prom guests “let’s dance.” What follows is one of the most raucous and energetic onscreen dance performances. To be fair, they released a lifetime of dancing desires in one night, no wonder they went crazy!
Amy Adams’s Performance of “That's How You Know” in “Enchanted”
A fairy-tale set in the real world, Disney’s “Enchanted” included several amazing musical numbers. One of the film’s most famous, “That's How You Know,” begins with Amy Adams singing to a very cynical Patrick Dempsey and soon gets New York’s entire Central Park involved.
The scene is said to have required hundreds of extras and 150 actual dancers to bring the performance to life. The scene is so moving and inspiring that it manages to make Patrick’s character actually believe in true love, at least until the song is over.
