Movies That Make You Want To Dance

April 29th is International Dance Day and we have compiled a few movies that will make you want to set down your popcorn and have a dance party. These movies get you off the couch and moving. Whether you sing along to the music or have a full on dance party, these movies will set the mood for International Dance Day!

Pulp Fiction (1994)
Who can forget the dance scene between Mia Wallace and Vincent Vega? You may want to fast forward to the dance scene, if you have already seen the movie and reply it for inspiration. Those Travolta dance moves are classic.

Bring it On (2000)
While this movie is technically a cheerleader movie, the cheers include dance moves. Gather your friends to have a dance off while re-watching this 2000s teen classic. The music will bring you and your squad back in time while battling it out to see who has the best moves and comebacks.

Footloose (1984)
Yes, there has been a remake, but what is more classic than Kevin Bacon as Ren rebelling against a religious small town’s ban on dancing and rock n’ roll? Being told to not dance is just asking for an epic dance party. So grab your cowboy boots and bring in some good old fashioned rock n’ roll and dance your heart out with Ren.

Mamma Mia! (2008)
 Mamma Mia! is unapologetic musical in every sense. Abba fans can rejoice to singing along with the music and once the singing begins, follows the dancing. The numbers are cheesy in all the right ways as Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) tries to figure out who her father is. No shame in belting out some Abba on Friday night!

Dirty Dancing (1987) 
Dirty Dancing reminds you of the intense chemistry dancing holds. Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze) and Baby (Jennifer Grey) created so many iconic dance scenes together. When Johnny lifts Baby in the air still remains a classic move. Who would not want Patrick Swayze to lift them in the air?

Saturday Night Fever (1977)
Rounding out the list is another Travolta classic. If you have anything from the 1970s lying around your house, it is time to put those bell bottoms to good use. The movie reminds us that dance is really about escaping reality and letting loose for a few minutes. Disco is meant to be danced to, so dance your heart out and celebrate International Dance Day!
