Dirty Dancing continues to make us swoon.

The 1987 movie that had everyone dancing and secretly wishing they could run off to a summer camp and fall in love continues to inspire people today.

There was nothing quite like this teenage drama set in 1963 that starred Jennifer Grey and the late, great Patrick Swayze.

The dance at the end of the movie made it an instant classic that movie-goers will never forget.
