Dancing is a form of expression. It is relaying to the onlookers your mood and peace of mind through body posture and facial expressions. There’s no denying the fact that everyone loves dancing, if not in public, then away from the scrutinizing eyes of the others. Movies have a special relationship with dancing. Classics such as’Singing in the Rain’ and ‘West Side Story’ make extensive use of rhythms and grooves. The industry developed from this transient, yet vociferous rebellion against black and white and silence. It often acts as a reprieve for the audience, detracting them from the film, and taking them to a dreamy land. In spite of all other notions, dancing ought to be viewed as an essential part of a movie.
The unexpected and extreme success of ‘La La Land’ has enkindled a lost vestigial tradition, which might be interesting for us. So here is the list of top dancing movie scenes. I have tried to include a variety of numbers, as if language doesn’t see borders, so does dancing. Of course, La La Land dance scene, Pulp Fiction dance scene and Dirty Dancing dance scene are on the list.
12. Hail, Caesar! – No Dames
The Coens again managed to get our attention and throw us indifferently into the fancy world of middle-aged and coarse sailors crooning and tap dancing. It also had an element of the story moving forward, with surreptitious briefcase placing among other things. Coming to the perfectly coordinated scene, it’s just unbelievable how well these folks managed to make use of their surroundings. Immense credit must go to the choreographer in this scene for his ingenious use of whites and blacks to draw up an illegible contrast. Go and tap away!
