Power Couple: Dirty Dancing


Full Disclosure: Dirty Dancing isn’t my favorite power couple movie but one I recently wanted to watch again. I think I saw this movie far too young, like most kid’s of the 80s.  Therefore, I didn’t understand the social divide and discrimination in the movie. From memory, I believed Johnny and Baby to be an unbalanced couple. After watching, their relationship still seems to be a summer fling and not a consummate relationship – one with equal parts passion, companionship, and commitment. If you don’t know about Sternberg’s Triarchic Theory, you should check it out.

I chose to recreate this scene because it was the most memorable to me. I hope you guys are having a great week.
