10 Best Surprising Dance Scenes In Non-Dance Movies
From Dirty Dancing to Footloose and newer films like Step Up and Take the Lead, dance films know how to get fans feeling like they are ready to hit the dancefloor themselves. Since audiences know what they are in for when it comes to dance movies, dance sequences become even more fun when no one is expecting it in other films! A lot of non-dance films have incorporated some pretty stellar dancing scenes that probably didn’t really have a place in the movie and just seemed very weird, but there have been some that have definitely livened things up a bit. Here are the 10 best dance scenes in non-dance movies:
2003’s Grind was the furthest thing from a dance film. Starring Mike Vogel, Adam Brody, Joey Kern and Vince Vieleuf, the movie focused on four friends who chase a pro skateboarding tour around America in hopes of being noticed for their skateboarding skills. In the midst of all the skateboarding and hilarious antics the guys wind up in a club event for all the pro skateboarders and break out in an absolutely hilarious choreographed dance to Young MC’s “Bust a Move.” In the commentary the stars later admitted that Vince had actually missed all of the dance scene prep and if watched closely it is easy to tell he is just trying to follow the other guys. While it certainly wasn’t expected, it was an extremely entertaining addition to the movie.
9. The 40-Year-Old Virgin
The 40-Year-Old Virgin is one of the most iconic comedies of the 2000s and while it was certainly wild and random, it didn’t get more random than the film’s unexpected dance scene. After Steve Carrell’s Andy finally loses his virginity to the love of his life Trish, she asks, “So, how was that for you?” In response, Andy begins singing the opening to the iconic Hair medley of “Age of Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In” which turns into a choreographed dance scene in the middle of a field with a shirtless Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen. With stars like Carrell, Rudd and Rogen as the leads of a Judd Apatow film, there is never any telling what hilarious thing they are going to next so, while the dance scene was surprising, you can never count anything out of an Apatow movie.
