One of the most important and mesmerizing forms of art, dance, is present everywhere in our daily lives. It has often been said that dance sets one’s soul free. Be it street dancing or contemporary, Hollywood seems to have hit the right notes despite a relatively smaller number of dance movies it has produced. Slowly and steadily, Hollywood is moving towards depicting music and dance as a part and parcel of their films. ‘La La Land’ is a very fine example which took most Americans by surprise. Still, from wonderful documentaries about ballet or tango to heartfelt stories about passion for dancing, here’s a list of really good dance movies on Netflix that you should watch, if you have a penchant for it or if you’d like to pursue it as a career. You can also watch some of these dance movies on Hulu or Amazon Prime.
