Dancin’ On My Own
You know those scenes on T.V. shows and in movies where an angsty teenage protagonist has a really dramatic solo dance party in their bedroom? If not, take a minute to look over these sources:
Kirsten Dunst in this scene from Bring it On
Lindsay Weir dancing to "Box of Rain" in Freaks and Geeks
Or my personal favorite, this scene from My So Called Life
Welcome back. At this point you may be wondering, “Why have I never done this before??” In which case, I am extremely sorry that you live in the town from Footloose. I mean, what better way to get rid of all that excess teenage emotion than with a good old-fashioned shaking session? My point is that YOU, TOO, CAN HAVE A DANCE SEQUENCE OF CINEMATIC PROPORTIONS! All you need are the right tunes, (and maybe a hairbrush to sing into).
