Historical Circuit: Top 35 Dance Sequences in Film, Vol. 2

16. “Fake ID” – Footloose (2011)

I find Craig Brewer’s remake of Footloose (1984) to be just as fun as the original. Brewer’s camera does a lot of the work during this line dancing sequence, starting with the tracking shot of feet reminiscent of the opening shots of both films. The stomping and clapping by the cast give this kinetic energy and actually makes line dancing look fun!
