14 Odd Facts About What Happened On The Set Of ‘Dirty Dancing’

This movie about the secret underworld of ‘Dirty Dancing’ was released in 1987 and it had everyone talking! It is a love story about two worlds that collide in a sexy tango of dance and drama. No wonder we were mesmerized once we saw Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze light it up with their performances! However, after all of this time, let’s take a look behind the scenes and talk about some of the things we may not know about our favorite film. Take a look:
