Best Dance Movies of the 1980s

LIFESTYLE - LISTING

by Birsen Oray

Some of the best dance movies of the 1980s rank among the best dance movies of all time. Most of the best-known movies about a variety of dance styles, from ballet to breakdancing, ballroom to freestyle, were released in the 1980s.

The 1980s was such an important decade for dance movies that it greatly contributed to the spread of dance culture around the world. The dance movies that were released in this decade also became the debut films of some of the most famous names in Hollywood. In fact, the names considered among the most famous ballet dancers of the world took part in movies during this period. And some of the songs we heard in these dance movies took their place among the unforgettable tunes.

Only the lucky people who lived in that period can truly know the impact that the best dance movies of the 1980s had when they were released. I think that these dance movies, which we watch with excitement and hum their melodies even after almost 35 years from the date of their release, deserve great respect because they have achieved such great success without visual effects or science fiction elements.

To compile a list of the best dance movies that made a huge impact in the 1980s, I looked at the movies released between 1980 and 1989. I have selected the best dance movies of the 1980s among these movies and listed them for you. Come on, pick a movie from the list of the best dance movies of the 1980s and watch it again, no matter how many times you've watched it before.
