Top 12 Dance MoviesBy Vika https://pictolic.com/en/article/top-12-dance-movies
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.
2. Feel the rhythm.
There are many great dance movies out there and this one is no exception. When April's (Sophia Carson) dreams of being successful at dancing are shattered, she regains hope and finds a lot of fulfillment teaching kids how to dance.
3. Flash dance.
Alex Owens works in a factory during the day and dances in a nightclub at night. Her biggest dream? Enter a prestigious dance conservatory and become a full-time professional dancer.
Ironically, one of the greatest dance films of all time is about a city where dancing is banned.
5. Dirty dancing.
If dance movies ever make it into the rankings, it's a guarantee that Dirty Dancing will come out on top.
6. Step forward.
Step Up, better known as "the movie that made us love Channing Tatum," obviously deserves a spot on this list.
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.
8. Saturday night fever.
Saturday Night Fever will go down in history as one of the best dance movies, and its music can make you fall in love with disco. Seriously.
9. Super Mike.
Mike Lane, played by Channing Tatum, works multiple jobs, but his biggest goal is making furniture. However, along the way, he discovers his natural talent for dancing - and it's not just about the sexual rotation of the body. He is really good!
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.
11. Brotherhood of dance.
A real gem among dance films. It centers around a street dancer named DJ who goes to college and joins a fraternity. One day at school, he enters a tap dance competition with his fraternity brothers.
Starring Christina Aguilera, Cher, and Kristen Bell, it's full of drama, divas, and more Swarovski crystals than you can imagine.
