Nothing left for me to do but...DANCE!

Posted on


Centerstagedance_l The Wayans Brothers and MTV Films’ comedy Dance Flick (read EW’s review here) opens tonight, and we’ve gotten all nostalgic just thinking about all the toe-tapper movies Flick could possibly parody. Know what might be just as good as the movie? Today’s EW.com photo gallery of 30 Classic Dance Scenes! My personal favorite by far: Center Stage’s Cooper’s Dance. I know, I know, the film is kind of considered a guilty pleasure, but in all seriousness, I think it’s a great movie. And by great, I mean that I can pretty much watch it over and over again and never get sick of it. (Admit it: every time you catch it on ABC Family and such, you get sucked in too!) I love getting a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world of super-competitive dance, but the best part of Stage is the finale performance in which Jody (Amanda Schull…um, wonder where she is these days?) sheds her good-girl image — literally — and busts a move in a fiery red costume to Jamiroquai’s “Canned Heat.”

What about you, PopWatchers? Which dance scene puts canned heat in your heels?
