There was a time when i took ballet for two years every week and i still remember my happiness after the class at 9pm after a whole day of work and a ballet class. So many of my friends would ask, Aren't you tired? And i go, this is my relaxation!
So if you need some inspiration to get some classes or simply turn on the music and start dancing, here are some of my all time favorite dance movies:
1. Shall we dance Who can forget the image of JLO in those sleek buns doing a tango with the very charming Richard Gere. Coincidentally, my ballet teachers name was Richard too and quite a gentleman he was. This movie just shows how anyone can dance and learn to enjoy it
3. Take the lead A great real life story of how dance can teach life lessons and give direction to the kids on the streets. It is an inspirational movie with some amazing dances to enjoy.
4. Step up The first of the sequels is my favorite and it has a good mix of street dance and modern ballet. It's not one of the classics but still a good dance movie for this generation.
5. Black Swan If you love ballet, Black Swan is one of the most beautiful shows ever with pretty costumes and a great story. The 2010 movie though is dark, sometimes scary but also gives us a peek into the cut throat world of ballerinas.
So, Just dance, gonna be okay!
