Iconic film: Dirty Dancing (1987)

Pin It



¿¿Cómo es posible que aún no os haya hablado de Dirty Dancing?? Fue uno de los films icónicos de los 80 y la película que convirtió a Patrick Swayze (que en paz descanse) en un todo sex symbol de su época. (¡¡Aún suspiro por él cada vez que la veo!!)  

Dirigida por Emile Ardolino en 1987 y protagonizada por Patrick Swayze (Johnny Castle) y Jennifer Grey (Baby Houseman) narra la historia de amor de un experto profesor de baile con una idealista e inocente adolescente. Ambos coinciden en un hotel de montaña durante las vacaciones de verano: ella como huésped, él cómo profesor y bailarín del centro. Cuando la joven ve al bailarín, queda prendada de él a pesar de las diferencias sociales entre ambos y se forma entre los dos una atmósfera cómplice a través del baile. Cuando una situación comprometida le aleja de su padre, Baby y Johnny inician un camino juntos en el que ella descubre el sexo y él el amor y la confianza.

La película, que se centra en los principios de la década de los 60, resalta las diferencias entre la clase trabajadora y la media-alta norteamericana, el comienzo de la ruptura de las «normas sociales» y el despertar de la libertad sexual.

Dirty Dancing se rodó con un bajísimo presupuesto y los recursos imprescindibles pero resultó un auténtico bombazo en taquilla. La canción (I've had) The time of my life ganó el Oscar y el Globo de Oro de aquel año y vendió millones de copias consiguiendo dos discos de platino. Además  la mítica frase “No permitiré que nadie te arrincone” ha quedado grabada a fuego en nuestra memoria.  

Aún recuerdo el verano que la estrenaron: ¡¡quedé tan extasiada que al día siguiente volví a verla!! 

¡¡Así que a disfrutar de nuevo con sus imágenes  y sobre todo con el vídeo final chicas!!
Decirme ¿qué recuerdos os trae? ;-)


How is it possible that I still haven't talked you about Dirty Dancing?? It was one of the iconic films of the 80's and the one that make Patrick Swayze became a sex symbol. (I still long for him each time I watch it!!)

Directed by Emile Ardolino in 1987 and starred by Patrick Swayze (Johnny  Castle) and Jennifer Garner (Baby Houseman) it tells the love story of an expert dance teacher (and gigolo!!) with an innocent and young high class girl. They both met the summer of ‘63 in a mountain resort: she’s a guest and he’s a dance teacher. Besides their different lives, the dance creates a intimate atmosphere between the couple that helps them to discover sex, love and confidence.

The film, set in the 60’s, underline the differences between the working and the middle-high north American class, the beginning of the social conventions breaking-off  and the awakening of the sexual liberty.  

Dirty Dancing was filmed with a super low budget but it became a massive box office hit. The song (I’ve had) The time of my life won both the Golden Globe and the Academy Award for Best Original Song and generated two multi-platinum albums. Besides, the iconic sentence: “Nobody puts Baby in a corner” is impossible to remove from our memory.

I still remember the summer I watched it for the first time: I was so amazed that I came back next day to watch it again!!

Now it’s time to enjoy again its images and the final video!!
Tell me ladies, what memories it brings to you??

  1. Yo era bastante "pequeña" cuando la vi por primera vez, por lo que me pareció de lo más picante, jajajaja. Y ahora, cada vez que la dan por la tele la dejo aunque esté a punto de acabar (¡¡el baile final es lo mejor!!)

  27. I can't believe you posted this!! Dirty Dancing is my favourite movie of all time!!! I remember the first time I watched it too, and I was immediately in love. I literally have a physical reaction (my heart skips a beat) every time I think about this movie. If I'm ever in a bad mood, I just need to THINK about this movie, and it instantly cheers me up. Oh, the sweet memories. . . . .
