Dirty Dancing & Songwriting Magic


“First dance. First love. The time of your life,” read the posters in 1987, as the words “Dirty Dancing” came to mean, that sweet little movie that brings a smile to your heart and a tap to your toe. Back then, the only way to see the film was to keep returning to the theater. And that is exactly what fans did. Over and over and over again. The only piece of that goodness that you could possess was the soundtrack, filled with dance inducing hits from the fifties and sixties and three new songs performed by Eric Carmen, Patrick Swayze, Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes and written by our guests, Franke Previte, John DeNicola and Stacy Widelitz.
