Favorite Things Friday – Week 11 – Dance Films

Continuing on with the theme of Dance here on PoppyRoseBlog, I have put together a list of my favorite dance films for Favorite Things Friday!

Take The Lead is an absolute favorite of mine – a group of kids learning ballroom dancing with Antonio Banderas? Sign me up! 🙂

Step Up is the first film in the ever-growing franchise – and it is the perfect excuse to see Channing Tatum in tights doing ballet!

Second in the series, Step Up 2: The Streets sees Andy & Chase start a crew and compete – this has a GREAT final dance scene! Go check it out!

Step Up 3D is where Moose moves to NYC, joins The Pirates and competes in World Jam – some great dance scenes throughout! The Pirates house = AMAZING! Also, are you BFAB? Check out this great film to find out!

Flash Mobs abound in Step Up Revolution! It isn’t just about performance art anymore – it’s protest art! (And Moose makes a guest appearance towards the end!)


Things come to a head in Step Up: All In! Some familiar faces are back again, picking up some new friends along the way. Can this new crew make it in LA to win the Vegas contract?

StreetDance is the UK’s version of Step Up – but can they blend ballet with hip-hop in London?

The second film in the StreetDance series sees George Sampson travelling across Europe to find the best dancers – can they mix latin & street to win in Rome?

Centre Stage: Turn It Up is the 2nd film in the series, and certainly my favorite. I am pretty sure I am a Ballet-rhino, are you?

Now Bomont might be a small town with some strict rules about music and dancing – but you can still get Footloose!

Jessica Alba might be gorgeous, but I prefer Honey 2 with Katerina Graham! Let the battle commence!

Again, I prefer the second film, and this time it is Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights! And for those who are sentimental about the first film – we do get a few scenes with Patrick Swayze!

Now Strictly Ballroom isn’t exactly a recent release, but it is a great film. Just give it a try and you might be pleasantly surprised!

This is a film I found recently – Make Your Move – and boy did it get my feet tapping! Featuring Derek Hough and BoA, this is definitely a film you wanna watch.

This is a film I haven’t watched in a while, but every time I do I am reminded of why I love it. Keep dancing with Make It Happen.

And to finish off my list…

Battle Of The Year! This is another great film about bringing a group of dancers together to become a team and follow their dreams.

So, what did you think? Are there any films we missed that you think should be included?

Let us know in the comments!

Come back next week for some more Favorite Things Friday!
