Granted, this is an eclectic pick. I'm talking about the school-dance number in James Foley's 1984 answer to "Rebel with a Cause."
Shot in shadows, stars Aidan Quinn and Daryl Hannah move in a blur, but we get the point. These brooding kids are using dance to express the hot, push/pull tensions of their sexual arousal. Like "Pulp Fiction," the film lists no choreographer among its credits and my search for the person responsible came up empty. My hunch is that it was improvised by Quinn and Hannah - or, as Quentin Tarantino did, Foley staged it himself.
We'll never know.
