Dirty Dancing - how it all started
The Dirty Dancing film was a phenomenal success and is still a classic that lovers of romance return to again and again but Dirty Dancing - The Classic Story on Stage has really taken the world by storm since its Australian debut in 2004. Produced by Jacobsen Entertainment the film was adapted for the stage by its original screenwriter Eleanor Bergman. The same songs were given an orchestral arrangement by musical director Chong Lim, one of the composers for the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Since 2004 Dirty Dancing has been in almost constant production somewhere in the world.
Dirty Dancing - The Classic Story on Stage is partly autobiographical with the wealthy Baby based on Bergman's own childhood. Baby is from a privileged background and on the cusp of womanhood when she falls in love while on holiday with Johnny a working-class dance instructor. A series of events turn Baby into the stand-in dancer at a weekly show where they acknowledge their love. After many misunderstandings and family outrage, they find a way to be together and the show ends with the now iconic Dirty Dancing lift.
Dirty Dancing - a music and dance sensation
Since its debut Dirty Dancing has seen productions across the globe from New Zealand to the Netherlands and Sweden to Singapore and wherever the curtain lifts it breaks box office records. The film version of Dirty Dancing propelled its leads Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze into stardom while the soundtrack which was recreated for the stage launched an oldies music revival and took RCA Records by surprise. The show's final song "(I've Had) the Time of my Life" is still a dance floor favourite.
