    "Where do I start??? It's just iconic – the outfits, the ballet moves, the fact there's three of them, THE SONG! Also, it's such a delightfully weird sequence, and yet it totally makes sense to the journey of the characters. 10/10."


    2. The final dance scene from Step Up 2.

    "I guess it's kind of a predictable answer, but I love when the Pirates are battling the House of Gwai in round two. The water comes on, Moose leads the crew, and they dance to 'Beggin' by Madcon – iconic. It made me love the song even more."

    4. "You're The One That I Want" from Grease.

    "It's not the best dance sequence, or even the best film in the movie series, but it's so adorable and vulnerable. It really shows how much Troy and Gabriella love each other. It warms my heart to see them together again!"

    — decoramore

    13. "The Inconceivable Sight" scene from Strictly Ballroom.

    "I love to watch Scott and Fran dancing to 'Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps'. The whole thing focusses on the dancers rather than the dance, and the chemistry between them is off the charts."

    — itsmeshahbano

    14. "Do You Only Wanna Dance?" from Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights.

    View this video on YouTube

    "Although I like the original Dirty Dancing film a lot, I think the second one was way better. The leads have amazing chemistry, and you feel it in their performances. That's something I just didn't feel in the first one."

    — itsmeshahbano

    15. "Straight and Nappy" from School Daze.

    "The song is a BOP (although the J-word makes me uncomfortable), and the choreography’s so fun!"

    — goosethekitty

    16. "Sixteen Going On Seventeen" from The Sound of Music.

    “Liesel's dress, the glass gazebo, the way the music lines up with the weather – it's all so perfect!"

    — aurorgel

    17. When Billy dances for his dad in Billy Elliot.

    "It's that moment when his dad walks in on him dancing, and Billy's in shock for a moment over being caught doing ballet, but then he goes on to dance unashamedly. Maybe it's not filled with wow choreography or difficult steps per se, but it's still a scene that stands out."

    18. "Brand New Girl" from Earth Girls Are Easy.

    "It's the campest thing I've ever seen... Geena Davis with a whip, anyone?"

    19. The tango scene from Take The Lead.

    "The film has so many great dance scenes, but the final one in which three of them do the tango is SO on point. I could watch it over and over!"

    — amaem113

    — juliaw1

    "I think I love it so much because their apparel is so different."

    — kayblu02

    22. "The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing" from White Christmas.

    "Throughout the whole movie, Jody is paranoid about her 'bad' feet, but Cooper gives her the lead part and she SLAYS. The combination of jazz and ballet is amazing to watch, and I always get excited when the scene is coming up."

    — puss_pastry

    "Jody's costume change into the red dance look is iconic! I cannot listen to 'The Way You Make Me Feel' without thinking of Center Stage."

    — fleurdelis123

    25. "El Tango De Roxanne" from Moulin Rouge.
