Have a Dance Movie Marathon with Netflix!

Last night I was perusing Netflix for an educational documentary (okay, maybe I was really looking for a sappy rom com—shh!) when something popped up on my screen: First Position. As in the super-awesome Youth America Grand Prix documentary First Position! I was thrilled to say the least. But before I could hit play, a slew of other dance flicks caught my eye. And they looked very promising.

So, if you’re wondering what to do this weekend (other than rehearse), we think you should host a dance movie marathon! Connect Netflix instant streaming to your TV and you’ll have hours of pure dance entertainment. Plus, your friends will love you for it.

Here are a few flicks we think you should check out:
