It’s 1963 and Frances «Baby» Houseman, her parents and her older sister are at a posh resort for the summer holidays. At the staff quarters, just off the hotel premises, the crew throw afterhours dance parties and one night Baby ends up there. The people, the music and the “dirty” dancing going on here is something she has never experienced before. A new world unfolds for young Frances Houseman, and at the center of it is Johnny, one of the resort’s dance instructors.

American family values collide head on with teen rebellion; innocence and young love meets the challenges of adult life in this classic 1987 film. We show the film as at “dance-along” screening at the Driv student house. No seats, just an open dance floor! And remember: Nobody puts Baby in the corner.
