A Stylish Supercut of Dance Scenes From '80s Movies

In honor of the 30th anniversary of Lionel Ritchie’s classic 1986 album Dancing on the Ceiling, YouTube user Robert Jones has created the ultimate supercut of dance scenes from '80s movies, set to the album’s catchy title track.

The supercut features all the classic '80s dance movies you’d imagine: Footloose (1984), Xanadu (1980), Purple Rain (1984), and Dirty Dancing (1987) all get some airtime. But it also takes the time to showcase some unexpected dance moments in non-dance movies. There’s the creepy dinner dance scene from Beetlejuice (1988), Pee-wee’s bar top dance in Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (1985), and of course, the iconic library dance scene from The Breakfast Club (1985). Full of big hair, bigger suits, and gravity defying dance moves, the supercut is a must-see for fans of 1980s pop culture.
