“What A Feeling” audition Dance from “Flashdance"


Hi All -

A slender and doe-eyed Jennifer Beals portrays Alex aPittsburg construction welder by day and a go-go dancer by night who has dreams of attending ballet school.

The movie was very popular, having tropes of the much better Saturday Night Fever. The plot was a bit shallow, but the movie had a dynamic soundtrack of 80’s songs and a feral energy.

Here is Alex’s “What a Feeling” audition number for ballet school which is energetic, athletic and iconic. A body double is employed for the more difficult moves, but it is an arresting bit movie dance drama.
