1. Pulp Fiction (1994)

Even when Mia Wallace (Uma Therman) demands that a reluctant Vincent Vega will dance with her in the 'Twist Contest', he does not disappoint. 

2. Saturday Night Fever (1977)

Okay, so this film might have been released almost 40 years ago, but at every wedding, christening or family party there are a significant number of us that still take inspiration from Tony Manero - namely dads. 

3. Perfect (1985)

When reporter Adam went along to Jessie's (Jamie Lee Curtis) aerobics class as research for an article on health clubs - aside from being annoyingly cocky - have a sneaky suspicion it wasn't his first time hitting the dance floor... This film had a certificate of 15 and we can see why. This gif alone has got us hot under the collar!

Is there anything this man can't do? Even when he looks almost unrecognisable sporting a bushy beard and a cowboy hat, his quick-steps never falter.

8. A 'Tokyo Drink' advert from the 80s

Oh wow. 

And the new....

9. A Brazilian rum advert (2013)

Like a bottle of rich Chilean Malbec or a hunk of succulent cheddar, John Travolta's dance moves seem to mature with age. 

Keep those hips swinging John Travolta!
