From scenes in Mary Poppins to the silly teenage angst movies centered around kids learning to dance … I love big dance numbers in movies. I have a tendency to find them on YouTube and play them over, and over. Or if I have a DVD of the movie, I watch the same dance scenes over and over. This tends to annoy anyone living with me!
I don’t know why I love dance scenes so much. Perhaps it’s the talent, the music or what the scenes usually represent (a lot of times they are a subtle or not-so-subtle major turning points in the plot).
Either way, here are links to some of my favorites (I don’t embed them because for some reason they keep auto starting when I do that):
