As with GREASE (1978) and FOOTLOOSE (1984) before it, DIRTY DANCING became a cultural phenomenon in 1987. In the summer of 1963, innocent and pampered 17 year old Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) vacations with her parents at a Catskills resort. One evening she is drawn to the staff quarters by stirring music and meets the handsome hotel dance instructor, Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze). Over the course of the summer these two individuals from different walks of life find a way to fall in love. DIRTY DANCING was a surprise box office hit and earned a Golden Globe and Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1988.
