The Best On-Screen Dance Scenes Of 2015

It might be an old-fashioned notion, but nothing livens up a movie quite like a dance sequence. And 2015 had some standout jumping, jiving, and disco robots.

  1. 1

    Joe Manganiello in 'Magic Mike XXL'

    Joe Manganiello’s solo dance sequence in a roadside gas station is a perfect encapsulation of the sequel. His character, Richie, has a simple goal: make one woman’s day. It’s straightforward, earnest, and so much fun.

  2. 2

    Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in 'Sisters'

    The Ellis sisters get down to retro hits in at least two extended dance numbers that are a highlight of this party comedy. Needless to say, Fey and Poehler have incredible, goofy chemistry.

  3. 3

    Oscar Isaac in 'Ex Machina'

    Deep into the runtime of Alex Garland’s brilliant cerebral thriller, Oscar Isaac and his silent assistant Kyoko start dancing to Oliver Cheatham’s “Get Down Saturday Night,” pretty much out of nowhere. It’s a gutsy, bizarre, and weirdly human moment in an otherwise tense and sterile environment.

  4. 4

    Amy Schumer in 'Trainwreck'

    Schumer booty popped her way back into Bill Hader’s heart with this glorious dance number with the Knicks City Dancers. Schumer may not have had the highest of the high kicks, but she had plenty of soul.

  5. 5

    Alison Brie in 'Sleeping with Other People'

    When Lainey and Jake (Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis) arrive at a kid’s birthday party rolling on molly, there’s only one thing to do: Put on David Bowie’s “Modern Love” and teach the children how to bust a move. That’s just what Lainey does in “Sleeping with Other People,” and the result is one of the year’s most joyous (and hip-swinging) moments.
