Dance scenes are some of the most classic, memorable scenes from movies. They move audiences in a way that no other type of scene can, inviting the audience to have a party right there in their own heart. Actors themselves are the people who make these scenes possible and bring joy to the audience. Over the years, we've seen thousands of dance scenes, but only a few of them have become what you'd call classic.
In this mashup video from 2016, YouTube channel Movie Remixer compiled dancing clips from over 60 classic movies, set to Justin Timberlake's hit Can't Stop The Feeling.
