In the days of quarantine we all miss dancing, but as we can't go out social dancing in the evening, we might as well watch a good dance movie, as there are plenty to choose from on the internet. 

For sure you already experienced how the passion of dance reflects on the screen and just draws you in. There are some movies that are just legendary and will stay in your memory forever, like Dirty Dancing, Flashdance, Footlose, Step up, Shall we dance, Swing time… Did any of them inspired you to start dancing in the first place?

This days many people are watching Netflix, so we wanted to see if we might discover some dance inspiration in their stream.

We were lucky to come across some of the legendary movies streaming on Netflix at the moment:

1.      Dirty Dancing

2.      Step up 3D

3.      Step up Revolution
