One of the best parts about working for DanceMedia (the parent company of Dance Magazine, Dance Teacher, Pointe, Dance Retailer News and Dance Spirit), is being surrounded by dancers all day, everyday. It’s not uncommon to see a co-worker doing pliés at printer, foam rolling in their cubicle or trying the newest plank exercise in the hallway. It’s like a dream come true, right?
Last week, Dance Magazine editor Khara Hanlon sent a simple mass email: “Tell me your all-time favorite dance scene in a movie.” As you can imagine, the responses came flooding in. Here are a few of the favorites I just had to share:
1. Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt’s audition for Dance TV in Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
2. Jody Sawyer’s dance in Center Stage
3. “I Think I’m Going to Like It Here” from the 1982 film version of Annie
4. “Everything Old Is New Again” in All That Jazz
5. “America” in West Side Story
