Dirty Dancing

Dirty Dancing is a 1987 American romantic drama dance film written by Eleanor Bergstein, produced by Linda Gottlieb, and directed by Emile Ardolino. It stars Jennifer Grey as Frances "Baby" Houseman, a young woman who falls in love with dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze) at a holiday resort.

Plot

In the summer of 1963, Frances Houseman, nicknamed Baby, is vacationing with her parents, Jake and Marjorie Houseman, and her older sister Lisa, at Kellerman's, an upscale Catskills resort which is owned by Max, Jake's friend. Exploring one night, Baby secretly observes Max instructing the waiters, all Ivy League students, to romance the guests' daughters, no matter how unattractive. She also sees Max demeaning the working class entertainment staff, including Johnny Castle, one of the resort's dance instructors. Baby is attracted to Johnny, and dances briefly with him after his cousin, Billy, takes her to one of the staff's secret “dirty” dancing parties.
