Dance movies seem to strike the perfect balance between intense action and compelling romance. Even if you're not a dancer yourself (but especially if you are!), you can't help but tap your toes as you cheer for the good guy on the dance floor. If you think you're the only one who loves dance movies, trust me, you're not!

1. Black swan.

The dance scenes in this film are incredible, but at the same time quite unsettling. Natalie Portman plays Nina, a ballerina completely consumed by her dark lead role. All the other characters in the film, including Lily played by Mila Kunis, are portrayed through Nina's eyes, so it's hard to tell if we ever really meet the other characters' true selves.

7. Billy Elliot.

The film is set in England in 1984. The film follows Billy as he quits boxing and enrolls in a ballet class to pursue his true passion. This film actually has a great message as it reminds us that we should always be true to ourselves no matter what.

10. Super Mike XXL.

Channing Tatum strikes again! Not only is he great in "Step Up" and "Magic Mike", but he brings his incomparable dance moves to the big screen in Magic Mike XXL. And…well…thank god he did. Believe me, you won't regret it. While the first film was a dark drama directed by Steven Soderbergh, the latter was a delightful tale of a road trip...or, if you prefer, an adventure that features Donald Glover's serenade.
