A woman was caught on camera lying on the ground in her underwear after attempting to perform the iconic 'Dirty Dancing' lift with a male partner. The complex move went wrong and resulted in her dress being torn open, thereby leaving her half-naked on the ground.

The woman, who has not been identified, was seen in footage of the failed stunt dressed in a midi dress and boots, running towards her dance partner like 'Baby' in the Hollywood blockbuster. The dance move is best known from when it was used during the '(I've Had) The Time Of My Life' number in the classic 1987 movie 'Dirty Dancing' starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

Looking back at how Hollywood blockbuster ‘Dirty Dancing’ was 'almost never made'

The male partner is seen in the video lifting the woman in the air as he attempted to copy Swayze's timeless moves. However, that's when things went downhill, with the woman suddenly losing her balance as she had her arms around the man's neck and the rest of her body in the air. In a desperate attempt to catch her before she fell, the man grabbed her dress and it came off while the woman fell to the ground, exposing her black lingerie. Fortunately, the woman did not seem injured and appeared to be laughing at the failed stunt instead.


Social media was inundated with various reactions to the stunt. "Never mind showing her underwear, she's lucky she didn't break her neck. Makes me wince," one tweeted. "Her underwear matched her outfit. Looks staged," a comment read. "Nice one. Very significant schadenfreude value," another chimed in.




In August, MEAWW reported how a TikTok clip of a father-of-two dancing with the kids’ nanny went viral for all the wrong reasons as people branded it “unsettling”. The clip uploaded by the children’s mother on the platform showed her husband and the nanny taking turns lifting each other up and wrapping their arms around each other while also recreating the iconic ‘Dirty Dancing’ lift.

Though the 34-year-old mother, identified only as Rachel, called the duo’s behavior in the video innocent and also brought nanny Lizzie Norton in another video to defend herself, people were convinced that the dad Andrew and the nanny were sleeping together. The dance video showed Andrew in a T-shirt and jeans, and Norton wearing a loose tee and shorts. The young woman was shown trying to lift the dad off the floor but failed. Andrew then did the same and successfully lifted Norton by her waist. However, as he held her up in the air, his hands went higher and seemed to touch her breasts.


“You touched her boobs!” Rachel said in the video, to which her husband replied while laughing, “I know, I know.” Eventually, they did the famous lift from ‘Dirty Dancing’ for which Andrew held her by the armpits, and Norton put her hands around his neck while Rachel told them to correct their steps. After viewers complained that it seemed like Andrew was feeling her up, Rachel went out of her way to defend Norton. “Stop attacking her. She's an angel. She's a godsend to our family and people are attacking her like she's some sort of s**t,” she said.

In January this year, a woman nearly lost her life trying to recreate the famous choreography. Rosie Slennett tipped over her boyfriend's shoulders and landed on her neck in a failed execution of the tricky move. She was rushed to the hospital, and doctors were amazed that she was still able to walk following the incident.
