25 Best Dance Film Sequences Of All Time

These are the ones you fast-forward to see.

Dance From “Saturday Night Fever” to “Singin’ in the Rain,” dance on camera can be transformative, whisking you off into another world where maybe you could breakout in a tap dance down a sidewalk.

But sometimes, dance sequences punctuate a film with comedy, and we love that, too: “The Big Lebowski” famously delivered a comic “wow” in its fantasy number channeling all the Busby-Berkeley formations of the golden age of Hollywood film.

Of course, films about dancers, such as “Black Swan” or “Flashdance,” have multiple scenes to choose from. So we took the most representative scene, but its always up for debate.

We’ve arranged then in alphabetical order to avoid flash mobs outside our office — and inter-office rifts here at Dance.com!
