Why See Dirty Dancing?
it was the summer of 1963, everybody called me baby...
Grab your high-waisted trousers and get practicing your lifts, Dirty Dancing is back in town! Set in the long hot summer of 1963, it's the classic story of Frances 'Baby' Houseman for whom a family holiday to Kellerman's holiday resort and a steamy introduction to dancing will change her whole life. With sizzling romance, sexy moves, and the movie's beloved tunes, this breathtaking musical adaptation will give you the time of your life, all over again.
I carried a watermelon: what's the story of dirty dancing
Baby Houseman is bored out of her mind on her family holiday as every good teenager should be. That is until she encounters charismatic Johnny Castle, who teaches dance at the resort. When Johnny takes her back to the staff's after-hours secret party, she is shocked to discover a vibrant underworld of 'dirty dancing'. This rock 'n' roll music is totally at odds with the kind of music that Baby has so far experienced and certainly wouldn't meet with approval from her conservative parents. It's exciting and fresh, and she begins to fall for Johnny.
When Johnny's regular dance partner Penny has to pull out of the annual Sheldrake Dance competition, Baby steps in to help. The two embark on an intense period of practise to master the routine, during which love between the pair blossoms. However, it seems their relationship is not to be as Baby's father discovers their affair and orders an immediate end to it. But Baby and Johnny must find a way...
