After a long dry spell known as the 1990's and first half of the 2000's, there has been a resurgence of the dance film in the last few years. A few of which were bonafide hits (TV has picked up on this crazy with some fairly successful TV dance Shows as well) I know I'll be there with those pesky teenagers watching Step Up 3D later this year. The promise of freestyling and glitter being thrown at you in 3D is just too much to resist. As a companion piece to the blog "A Celebration Of 80's Movie Musicals" found here that I posted last summer, I ask you to once again put on your leg warmers & french cut leotards, get your best beat box going, put your dusty Thriller album on and enjoy this quick visual history.
And better late than nevah.. March 1990's
And if you've gotten this far, you're my kind of brave and daring film fan. Now don't you have the urge to burn up the dance floor? Or the very least some barn, warehouse or living room in your underwear?
