Mimicking classic “Dirty Dancing” routines to songs is a constant at weddings, random public places, your home, and birthday parties. But this jaw-dropping rendition of the dance by professional ice skaters is like nothing you could ever imagine. Ice skaters Stefania Berton and Ondrej Hotarek brought their “Dirty Dancing” routine to another level when they took it to the ice. The pair has such a melodic way of moving together and honoring the classic routine.
And the addition of some modern skating flare makes the whole endeavor so much fun!
You might feel like the movie came out yesterday, but “Dirty Dancing” is actually over 30 years old now. When the song “I’ve Had the Time of My Life” debuted, it was instantly a h-it all over the world. The melody rose to dominate the charts in 1987, remaining there for a week. It also netted the film an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
The awards didn’t stop there, though; the song received a Grammy Award for the Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals, a Golden Globe Award for the Best Original Song, and ASCAPs for “Songwriter of the Year” and “Most Performed Songs from Motion Pictures.” The iconic dance and upbeat lyrics are just two of many factors influencing its success.
Unfortunately, Ondrej and Stefania’s partnership was dissolved some years ago. But their past routines are wondrous to look back at. And we can always hope that they’ll find each other again in the future!
You just can’t walk away from this kind of chemistry. See it for yourself below:
