Just watched One Last Dance once again starring Patrick Swayze, Lisa Niemi, and George De La Pena. It is a powerful emotional movie full of dance, passion, and love. It tells the story of a dance school putting on a gala to raise money to stay afloat after the sudden death of the artistic director. The school re-unites 3 former dancers who performed a difficult dance choreographed by the director years before. They return after years of being apart, of not keeping up their craft to dance together one last time. Each brings old memories of their old teacher, of his cruelty, and how he robbed them of their love of the dance. Throughout the movie, they are fighting their demons of those old years of before. It resonates deep within, stirring up personal thoughts and memories of times of struggle, of greatness, the passing of years, and of small regrets. The dancing and the music is powerful and passionate and you get caught up in the emotional journey that eventually finds resolution and peace within each dancer and within yourself. I cannot fully describe how much I feel and love this movie. It was written and directed by Lisa Niemi, Patrick Swayze’s real life wife. What a wonderful way to celebrate and remember the beauty of Patrick Swayze and his dancing.
