Napoleon Dynamite and more movies with epic dance scenes
We’re square in the middle of Matric Dance season here in South Africa, when teens across the country will be slow-dancing in school halls to whatever the 2019 equivalent of Goo Goo Dolls’ Iris is (we’re revealing our age here, aren’t we?).
That got us thinking about all the amazing and amazingly cringe-worthy dance sequences at high school talent shows and proms we’ve seen in Hollywood movies over the years. Here’s WatchMojo’s video ranking their top 10 high school dance movies:
And here’s where to find some of those movies on internet TV.
Napoleon Dynamite (2019)
Stream it on Showmax.
Mean Girls (2004)
Back to the Future (1985)
Stream it on Netflix.
And, not a movie, but bonus pick:
The 1985 movie from the WatchMojo video isn’t currently available on internet TV in SA but the series is ready to stream on Showmax. You may not get to watch the iconic dance in the video below (for which Michael J Fox had a dance double – director Rod Daniel joked that Fox was a terrible dancer), but you will get to enjoy the moments in the video above when you stream all six seasons.
