It’s hard to believe that ‘Dirty Dancing’ was a low-budget movie that was originally supposed to be released for one week in theaters and then to home video, but instead, it became one of the biggest hits of the ’80s earning over $214 million worldwide. It was also the first film to sell more than a million copies for home video.

The soundtrack was also a huge hit, and the theme song for the movie was ‘I’ve Had The Time of My Life’ by Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes. In the final scene of the movie, Patrick Swayze’s character Johnny Castle enters the ballroom and finds “Baby” played by Jennifer Grey and says his famous line, “Nobody puts baby in a corner”. He takes Baby to the stage and they perform one of the most memorable dance scenes in movie history. Enjoy the final dance from ‘Dirty Dancing’!
