The Double-Tap Heard 'Round The World, Save the Last Dance (2001)
Forget that final dance scene. Okay, sure, they did something cool with a chair. But this dance, with the double-tap spin, is what kept you up at night, cursing the day you gave up dance class for soccer. No one's going to want to see you head-butt a ball at the club.
The Subject Of Your Romantic Fantasies, From Age 12 To Forever, Dirty Dancing (1987)
It's been pointed out that "nobody puts baby in the corner" doesn't make any sense. But that really, truly doesn't matter. Patrick Swayze could say E = MC², and girls everywhere would have still swooned and worked on their skirt-twirling abilities.
That Time Dancing Defeated Racism, Hairspray (2007)
The movie that made you think maybe you actually could be a dancer. If Zac Efron can make it look good even after this modern dance debacle, there's hope for all of us.
Even If The Punch Had Been Spiked, Your Prom Would Not Have Been This Fun, Footloose (1984 & 2011)
