10 Random Dance Sequences in Non-Dancing Movies

Great List Found on

Published by Nattyb


Have you ever watched a comedy or even a drama that clearly doesn’t give off the vibe that a dance scene is about to come on? It’s almost like you say “what the hell is going on here?” Or not even that. Sometimes you’ll be watching a movie and just know that the directors were thinking “let just put in a dance thing here and throw the audience.”

Well I’ve spent the last annoyingly long amount of time trying to find 10 of these scenes. And it doesn’t get much more random than these.

Here are 10 random dance sequences in Non-Dancing movies

Coming to America

This is kind of a funny scene. It falls right in line with the somewhat sexy tone of the movie. But let’s face it, Coming to America is NOT a dance movie and Landis obviously put this in for the hell of it.

40 Year-Old Virgin

Age of Aquarius. I couldn’t find the scene from 40-Year-Old virgin but here’s what they based it on. It was originally in the movie Hair. The scene in 40-Year-Old couldn’t have been any more random if it tried.

Napoleon Dynamite

Probably one of the best “man did this throw me for a loop” moments in the history of dance sequences.

She’s All That

OK what? Where in the hell did this come from? Everyone at a prom dancing in unison? Is that what the kids do these days?

American Wedding

Stifler’s Dance Off. This was pretty awesome.

Superbad Opening Credits

Has zero to do with the movie yet is awesome.


Again, random as hell but awesome.

Tropic Thunder

He may not have been in the movie long, but Cruises dance became an internet sensation.

King of New York

In the very beginning of the movie Frank White does a little shimmy. It’s enough of a dance move to be on this list.

Road Trip

DJ Qualls! Where the hell is that guy?
