Footloose, The Greatest Gymnastics Movie Of All Time

Last night, I re-watched Footloose for the umpteenth time and it struck me that this is perhaps the best gymnastics movie of all time.

For those of you who have never watched the original Footloose--not that terrible 2011 remake--Ren (a super young Kevin Bacon) is new to a town where dancing and rock music are against the rules. Ren is a gymnast and dancer who doesn't play by the rules.

Here's the famous warehouse "angry" dance scene, complete with giant swings and a full twisting double back dismount.



Happy Weekend!
