Couple Takes The Stage For 'Dirty Dancing' Routine And Has The Crowd Going Nuts

We've all heard of dance fads like the "Whip and Nae Nae," "The Bernie," and the "In My Feelings" challenge, but there's one type of dancing that will never go out of style! For more than 80 years, swing has been a staple in American culture - and these two dancers are proof it's not going anywhere.
The manner in which these two dancers slide, boogie, and bop across the floor is truly mesmerizing, and people watching online just can't get enough.
Bianca Locatelli and Nils Andrén have been dancing partners since they could remember. In fact, they're so good at swing dancing that they travel the globe, spreading their love of swing and teaching others to dance with as much passion as themselves!
But when it came time for Bianca and Nils to demonstrate their skills during the "Rock That Swing" festival in Munich, Germany, no one knew what to expect. The audience certainly wasn't anticipating a swing performance set to Dirty Dancing's hit song "Hey! Baby" would generate buzz like this...
Instead of selecting a stuffy, old-school song that no one knew, Bianca and Nils picked a tune that had the judges out of their chairs and dancing along too! It makes sense why they were slated to take home the top prize long before they even stepped onto the dancefloor.
Even though he looks like a natural now, Nils admitted his journey to dancing was a long one.
"I tried ice hockey, it's not my thing. I tried soccer, not my thing... I tried a lot of things."
No matter what type of exercise he tried, the only thing that really clicked was swing dancing. His body moved to the music in a way that seemed independent of his mind - and the adrenaline he felt while whipping Bianca around the floor was unparallelled. He needed more dancing in his life!
That's when he stumbled into Bianca and the rest is Dirty Dancing history...
