Overview
Heartthrob PATRICK SWAYZE, JENNIFER GREY and dancing sensation CYNTHIA RHODES star in this electrifying and sensual film. A vivid love story, DIRTY DANCING is set to pounding rhythms and vibrant dance – guaranteed to be the time of your life!

It's summer, 1963. Baby (GREY), 17 years old and innocnet, is vacationing with her parents in the Catskills. While exploring the resort grounds late one evening, she is drawn to the staff quarters by stirring music. There she meets Johnny (SWAYZE), the hotel dance instructor, who is as experienced in life as Baby is naïve. Mesmerized by the sexy beats and uninhibited movements of "dirty dancing," Baby soon becomes Johnny's prize pupil – in dance and in love.
