1987's Dirty Dancing sees headstrong 17-year-old Baby Houseman (Jennifer Grey) on her family's usual summer vacation in the Catskills, New York, hardly expecting it to be momentous. But then she spies Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), the resort's dance instructor from the wrong side of the tracks.
Johnny's facing a crisis: his dance partner and friend, Penny, is pregnant and has reluctantly decided to get an abortion. This leaves Johnny a solo act - until Baby agrees to take Penny's place. She has to learn how to dance first, however, and as Johnny teaches her the choreography's sexy, seductive moves, the two fall in l-o-v-e.
