Where were you the first time you saw Dirty Dancing? For 30 years, Dirty Dancing has remained one of the most alluring, romantic and delightful films to become part of our pop culture consciousness. Now, on the special occasion of Dirty Dancing‘s 30th anniversary, we’re taking a trip down memory lane to see what makes this film so special that it’s remained such a fond fan favorite.
Dirty Dancing tells the story of Baby, a young woman who’s deciding what direction she wants to take her life as she enters into adulthood. Luckily, she has an entire summer to figure it out at Kellerman’s, a resort where her family goes every summer to relax, swim, do daytime activities and, yes, even dance.
It’s dancing that gets Baby involved with Johnny Castle, one of the handsome dance instructors at Kellerman’s. After a personal tragedy strikes Johnny’s dance partner, Penny, Baby agrees to help Johnny out — but first, she has to learn how to dance. From there, romance blooms quickly between Baby and Johnny, and soon these two are trying to decide if they can make their romance last long after the summer ends.
So, are you ready to test your Dirty Dancing knowledge?
