Best Dances in Films

Let me present to you a few clips that encompass the funniest, most impressive and unexpected dance performances in film. I decided not to include any musicals or films about dancing and concentrate on “normal” movies where the characters suddenly bust a move. I hope this will make you smile!

1.     Scent of a Woman. Al Pacino & Gabrielle Anwar

The tango is by far the most popular dance used in films. It often works as a metaphor for a couple’s relationship. This example is from a wonderful film, where Al Pacino plays a blind ex-officer.

2.     The Mask of Zorro. Catherine Zeta-Jones & Antonio Banderas.

There is just too much hotness in this clip.

3.     Some Like it Hot. Jack Lemmon & Joe E.Brown

Whilst Tony Curtis is getting it on with Marylin Monroe, his best friend Jack Lemmon is reduced to keeping the yacht’s owner at bay throughout the night.

4.     Funny Face. Audrey Hepburn.

One of the most carefree dancing ever.

5.     Napoleon Dynamite. Jon Heder.

Revenge of the nerd.

6.     Airplane! Robert Hayes & Julie Hagerty.

A pastiche of many different films, this hilarious comedy never fails to make me laugh.

7.     The Addams Family. Raul Julia & Christopher Lloyd

A bit of Russian flavour.


House of Flying Daggers. Zhang Ziyi

Chinese perfection.


  Being John Malkovich.  John Malkovich.

Dance of despair and disillusionment


Last Tango in Paris. Marlon Brando & Maria Schneider.

The anti-tango of the anti-hero in this anti-romance.
