The 1980s was such an important decade for dance movies that it greatly contributed to the spread of dance culture around the world. The dance movies that were released in this decade also became the debut films of some of the most famous names in Hollywood. In fact, the names considered among the most famous ballet dancers of the world took part in movies during this period. And some of the songs we heard in these dance movies took their place among the unforgettable tunes.
Only the lucky people who lived in that period can truly know the impact that the best dance movies of the 1980s had when they were released.

I have selected the best dance movies of the 1980s among these movies and listed them for you.
