Watch Professional Dancers Break Down the Iconic "Dirty Dancing" Finale

October 9, 2019

You already know how much we love Vanity Fair’s “Movies in Motion” YouTube series, with its deep dives into the most iconic movie dance scenes of all time. (It’s basically SparkNotes for your required dance-movie watching.)

Now it’s back—and this time, our favorite dynamic dance duo (and IRL couple), Chris Grant and Lauren Yalango-Grant, are breaking down the epic finale of the 1987 cult classic Dirty Dancing. Set to “Time of My Life,” the familiar scene was originally choreographed by the legend himself, Kenny Ortega.

We’re not sure which is the best part—Chris’ goofy dance moves between takes, the couple’s struggle to achieve the famous final lift (come on, you know you’ve tried it too), or the interesting movie trivia they spill while attempting to perfect the choreo. Watch the full video below!
