One of my all-time favorite movies ever is Dirty Dancing. It’s just such a classic story! And, not to mention, Patrick Swayze owns it the whole time in his epic turn as dance instructor Johnny Castle.
He can dance, he’s a loyal friend to Penny, and he’s not afraid to stand up for Baby. Who could ever forget when he uttered the iconic line, “Nobody puts Baby in the corner.” It’s one the greatest lines in cinematic history. And, yes, that’s just my opinion, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong!
And arguably the biggest moment of the entire movie came just seconds later when Baby and Johnny hit the stage and did their timeless dance to “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” in front of everyone. This song. It’s too good! And it’s become a favorite over the years for anyone trying to pay homage to Dirty Dancing.
Take a look at Derek Hough and Bindi Irwin dancing to it on Dancing with the Stars, they’re amazing. And then there’s this father-daughter duo who did a hysterical lip sync to the tune at her wedding. So funny!
Another perfect moment to pull out a good Dirty Dancing reference? During your first dance at your wedding reception. This couple completely nailed it!
