In my first life (or, well, until I turned ten), I was a dancer. Not a particularly good one, mind you, but I did my best. I no longer harbor dreams of dancing with Baryshnikov on the Metropolitan Opera House stage, but I do still like to shake my tailfeathers now and again, usually within the confines of my living room, and occasionally while watching the "Shake and Shimmy Edition" DVD of Hairspray. (They teach you the choreography! It's awesome! I'll do "Ladies' Choice" right now, if you want to see it.)
Anyway, if you like dancing and/or dance-related movies, as I do, then I bet you'll like this.
After two viewings I've identified clips from:
Saturday Night Fever
Singin' in the Rain (and several other Gene Kelly-related clips)
Step Up 2: The Streets
West Side Story
Jay and Silent Bob
A movie featuring Jamie Lee Curtis, John Travolta, and terrible 80s leotards, which I've identified as a film called Perfect
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
What I think is Titanic
Phantom of the Opera
Something with Michael Jackson
High School Musical
Save the Last Dance
What I think is The Mask of Zorro
A Knight's Tale
Most surprising? The recent Steve Carell-starring remake of Get Smart.
Most surprising omission: Where the heck is Center Stage?!
There are a number of clips I couldn't identify, but take a look, folks. What did I miss?
