Dirty Dancing is the record-breaking live sensation that has been seen by millions across the globe. Frances “Baby” Houseman is on vacation with her family when she stumbles upon the staff quarters and an all-night dance party in full swing. Mesmerized by the raunchy dance moves and the pounding rhythms, Baby can’t wait to be part of the scene – especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle, the resort dance instructor.
