IHGB Podcast 46: Dancing in Movies
I understand that this podcast title may be confusing. Let me explain:
When listener Kara suggested this topic, I was validated because I’ve been circling it for a while. However I didn’t just want to do dance movies because most of my favorite dance movies are musicals. And I already did a podcast on musicals. (It was wonderful, by the way. You should listen!)
But in Kara’s email to me, she phrased her suggestion as “dance scenes in movies.”
It all clicked. I sashayed over to my phone, called my sister, and we had a solid list in five minutes. Some are dance movies, some are musicals, and others are just fun dance scenes from movies. Brilliant! My brain no longer hurts! Thank you Kara!
Fair warning: We are unconventional and old. That’s code for WISE. Watch these dance movies and forever be changed!
