The best '90s dance movies came to us in quite a variety of dance styles. From ballroom dancing in Strictly Ballroom, to ballet in The Nutcracker, to erotic dancing in Showgirls, we've got a ton of great dance movies from the 1990s for you to check out. 
 

What's the most popular dance film from the 1990s? The cult classic Showgirls may have bombed in box offices, but the home video rental and purchase were totally off the charts. Showgirls is one of those movies that's so bad it's good, and it's still MGM's best-selling film to date. The Full Monty was basically the original Magic Mike - it featured a group of blue-collar male strippers, just trying to make their way in the world.
