A documentary film about dancing on the screen, from it's orgins after the invention of the movie camera, over the movie musical from the late 20s, 30s, 40s 50s and 60s up to the break dance and the music videos from the 80s.Written by

Footage of Liza Minnelli performing "Mein Herr" in Cabaret (1972) figured prominently in the marketing campaign of That's Dancing! (1985), appearing in the title logo, on the cover of the soundtrack album and in the movie's press kit. The song was originally slotted as the first number of the final section, just prior to "You Should Be Dancing" from Saturday Night Fever (1977), but all that remains in the release print is a brief video snippet under Minnelli's screen credit in the main title. Deleting the number was an error of judgment, if only because Minnelli emerges as the only co-host in the film not seen performing in a featured dance sequence. See more »
Sammy Davis, Jr.:
Among the great stylist of the 30s, Astaire and Rogers contributed more dancing of unsurpassed originality and execution than any other artists. Fred Astaire. Ginger Rogers. Nobody does it better.

A wonderful documentary about dance and some of the greatest dance film stars ever. Ive recently seen it and enjoyed it!But must say that I thought the dancing from the 70's and 80's wasn't a 'spectacular' as the dance numbers from the 30's and 40's. I rate it a 8/10 stars. ********
