Buzz In: What Are Your Favorite TV and Movie Dance Scenes?

Can you imagine clumsy celebrities remaking classic dance scenes from Singin' in the Rain or Dirty Dancing? That's the idea behind ABC's new mini-show Let's Dance, which will feature stars trying to re-create some of those famous dances stage. ABC plans to air five episodes of the series in between seasons of Dancing With the Stars, and while I thought I was immune to dancing shows at this point, I kind of want to see this one. I do love dance movies, after all, and the thought of the likes of Steve Wozniak attempting some of those moves just makes me giggle.

It also got me thinking: what are some of your favorite iconic dance scenes from TV and movies? I'll start you off with the three shown above: the final audition scene in Flashdance, Amber Atkins's exuberant tap routine in Drop Dead Gorgeous, and the "Seize the Day" number from Newsies. Take it away!

There are two scenes in The Wedding Planner where they are slow dancing in the park under the moonlight. There's another scene in the same movie where they are rehearsing & she's obviously upset w/ him but it's a very sexy can see the attraction.

Most of the ones I would have mentioned are already on here, but I'll add the part in 10 Things I Hate About You when Heath's character sings and dances to "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You". Swoooooon.

Gene Kelly's newspaper routine in Summer Stock, the barn dance in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and the final ballet in An American in Paris are pretty tops for me!

The final ballet in Center Stage was an instant classic. The 'High School Musical' number in HSM3 (God, please don't strike me down for referring to it as HSManything). "Good Morning" from Singin'in the Rain. Final scene in Dirty Dancing. And I know this isn't a 'dance' scene, but the final Olympics routine from The Cutting Edge is one of my all-time favorites.

Grease - the Dance off between Sandy/Danny and Danny/Cha-cha Slumdog Millionaire - the end credits dancing Dirty Dancing - the end scene of course Titanic - the Irish dancing in steerage oh yes, Mamma Mia - the Dancing Queen scene, LOVE this! and Staceygirl, thanks for reminding me of Teen Witch and Romy and Michelle Oh, but I must go with Little Edie and Grey Gardens as my #1: Little Edie's VMI Marching Song and waving the little American flag at the camera. It's especially good when set to Madonna's "Hung Up" as someone proved in a popular youtube vid way back, which is apparently gone now because I can't find it anywhere!!

Maybe this doesn't qualify, but the "Let's Hear It For The Boy" scene in Footloose, where Kevin Bacon is teaching Chris Penn to dance. The "Love Is In the Air" dance in Strictly Ballroom.
