Dance movies were always popular amongst the public. Footloose, Dirty Dancing, Flashdance, Saturday Night Fever, and other dance classics popularized the genre and made children actually pursue dancing as an out-of-school activity. It seems over the top, but not anyone can dance well, and if there is an opportunity for watching skillful dancers, I would jump on and watch it immediately. In the 21st century, its beginnings started “shipping out” quality and diverse dancing movies to the market, and they did not disappoint.

In this article, we decided to bring you the 10 best dance movies that are currently streaming on Hulu. Don’t worry, we implemented both street and classical dance movies so you have more options available. If you are interested in our list, stay with us until the end of the article.
