Answer: Kevin Costner

4. The 2004 movie "Shall We Dance" features what type of dancing?

Answer: Ballroom

Jennifer Lopez, Susan Sarandon and Richard Gere team up in this romantic comedy that centers around ballroom dancing. While the movie features a lot of nice dancing and preparation for a dance contest, it also explores how easy it is for us to let our lives become stale. A movie with a happy ending for all, it did well in the U.S. and abroad.
5. "Dancing Lady" (1933) marked the film debut of which iconic American dancer?

Answer: Fred Astaire

"Dancing Lady" was a musical drama that starred Joan Crawford and Clark Gable. It also features Fred Astaire in his first on-screen appearance where he plays himself. The movie centers around the struggles of a burlesque dancer trying to make it into a Broadway musical. Numerous stars were featured including the 3 Stooges and Nelson Eddy as himself.
6. "The Forbidden Dance" (1990) focused on the difficulties in becoming a prima ballerina.

Answer: False

"The Forbidden Dance" focused on Latin American dancing. This low budget movie was made in an attempt to cash in on the "Lambada" dance craze that had become popular during the very early 1990s. The somewhat convoluted storyline deals with rain forest destruction and a young Brazilian dancer who is trying to get the world to pay attention.

The script was written in less than two weeks and the movie critics were very harsh. While the movie has a small cult following it was a box office failure.
7. "Dirty Dancing" (1987) featured which Tony award winning actor as Dr. Jake Houseman?

Answer: Jerry Orbach

"Dirty Dancing" was a low budget movie that surprised Hollywood by becoming a smash hit. The soundtrack sold millions and the movie became the first film to sell a million copies on home video. Actress Jennifer Grey portrays Frances "Baby" Houseman a wealthy teenage girl who rebels against her father (Orbach) during a family vacation by starting a love affair with the dance instructor (Patrick Swayze) at their vacation getaway in the Catskill Mountains.
8. What is the name of the 1983 movie that stars Jennifer Beals and Michael Nouri that follows a female steel mill worker and her attempts at becoming a ballerina?

Answer: Flashdance

"Flashdance" was a successful movie that featured many of Pittsburgh's landmarks as scenic backdrop. It was loosely based on the life story of Maureen Marder who signed away all rights to her story for $2,300. In the movie Beals' character is trying to get into a prestigious dance school although she has had no formal training other than being an erotic dancer at night.

The movie deals with her struggles to get an audition for the school. While she does get the audition the movie leaves the watcher hanging as it never reveals whether she gets into the school or not.
9. "Invitation to the Dance" (1956) is an unusual musical movie for which of the following reasons?

Answer: There is no spoken dialogue

"Invitation to the Dance" was a three story anthology type film that starred and was directed by Gene Kelly. It featured no dialogue and everything was communicated by mime and dance. Although it featured music by famous composers such as Andre Previn and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and starred one of the most popular dancers at that time, the movie was a box-office failure.
10. What is the name of the 1986 movie in which Richard Pryor plays a comedian who has severely burned himself in a drug related accident?

Answer: Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life is Calling

Although comedian Richard Pryor, who had severely burned himself while freebasing cocaine, insisted that "Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life is Calling" was not an autobiography, many watchers were not so sure. The movie dealt with a comedian who is in a coma after being extensively burned while doing drugs.

His mysterious alter-ego leads the watcher on a trip examining Jo Jo Dancer's life, from his obscure beginnings to his fame as a successful entertainer and then his subsequent fall into the terrible labyrinth of drug addiction.
