Dirty Dancing is your classic forbidden
love story that revolves around Johnny (Patrict Swayze) and Baby
(Jennifer Grey) with that classic saying of "Nobody puts Baby in a

parents to a resort where the in-house entertainment headed up by
Swayze do their best to entertain the guests night after night.
Baby becomes infatuated with Johnny (Swayze) who isn't exactly taken

regular partner cannot be there for Johnny's after hours gigs where
he Dirty Dances, he reluctantly agrees to teach Baby a few moves and

enjoyment of the movie but just a little niggly thing that I
