Best 80’s Dance Scene?

I can’t decide… Kevin Bacon’s Footloose solo (1984) or Jennifer Beals’ “She’s a Maniac” workout in Flash Dance (1983)?

Beals…

Pros:

  • Probably more appropriate for a female to be seen carrying on like this
  • Legwarmers, obviously
  • Her apartment is a converted industrial space, so you know she’s cool
  • She does a masculine occupation (welder) with feminine sex appeal… INTRIGUE!

Bacon…

Pros:

  • It’s forbidden, so automatic points there
  • Impromptu gymnastics bit at the end
  • Impromptu gymnastics bit by Bacon stunt double (points revoked)
  • Light wash jeans

Winner? It’s a draw for me.  Weigh in!
