Dirty Dancing is one of my favorite movies. The predicament of falling for the guy from the wrong side of the tracks, the grit of every dance number, the phenomenal oldies soundtrack, the Americana fashion of jean cutoffs and bright white Keds, Patrick Swayze at his finest, Jennifer Grey nailing the coming-of-age role, etc. And really…I love it for the time it represents in my life. I’ll never forget BEGGING my mom to let me watch it during my older sister’s slumber party. I intermittently saw all the naughty dancing scenes through my mother’s fingers:) The bumping and grinding from that movie sparked a new dance craze at my middle school sock hops…we called it “freaking”. I still laugh at how we used to say…”Ouuu…are you going to freak him?”…or…”He must really like you…cause he tried freaking you to during that Color Me Badd song”. Hilarious. All of these funny memories sashayed through my head when I recently met Jennifer Grey. At 51…she has a figure–including a gravity defying backside–that is the envy of any 20-year-old. Bravo Baby!
