Famous dance scenes set in bars

This could be quite a fun and personal article. Think about some famous dance scenes happening in bars in films. Often, the narrative of a film is suspended for a few minutes just for a dance to happen. Why are bars perfect places for dances to happen?
A few examples:
– Charlie Chaplin in Modern Times
– Laurel and Hardy in Way out West (although they are not in a bar, they dance in front of the bar/saloon)
– Travolta and Thurman in Pulp Fiction
– GĂ©rard Philippe in The Proud and the Beautiful
– (It’s always fair weather maybe when the boys dance in the bar)
– (for inspiration, maybe think about how many times Michael Jackson set dance scenes in bars in some videos like Smooth Criminal, You Rock My World…)

  • Fun! The second Dirty Dancing movie had a dance/bar scene. Pretty much every Step Up movie, of course. Depending on how you define "bar", there's a scene in the engine room of the Titanic that could work. Diary of a Mad Black Woman has a dance/bar scene. The Heat with Sandra Bullock... good idea, lots of potential for great pictures! – Monique 9 years ago
  • could also include imagery and scenes from music videos :) – rocky13 9 years ago
  • If you want another famous dance scene, "Three Amigos". Enough said :) – Aaron Hatch 9 years ago
  • Travolta in everything: Saturday Night Fever, Urban Cowboy, etc. – Kristian Wilson 9 years ago
  • Could do some worst ones (Spiderman 3) and their impact on the topic - how some directors do certain sequences right and some wrong. – Thomas Munday 9 years ago
