“Nobody puts Baby in the corner…”
Now on of the most quoted and most romantic lines from any movie, DIRTY DANCING not only provides this saucy line, but so many juicy dance numbers and the story of a summer we all hope we will experience one day…
Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) is one listless summer away from the Peace Corps. Hoping to enjoy her youth while it lasts, she’s disappointed when her summer plans deposit her at a sleepy resort in the Catskills with her parents.
Her luck turns around, however, when the resort’s dance instructor, Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), enlists Baby as his new partner, and the two fall in love. Baby’s father forbids her from seeing Johnny, but she’s determined to help him perform the last big dance of the summer.
