The Real Dirty Dancing is an American adaptation of the reality dance competition series from Australia of the same name (and a four-week event) which in turn was based on the iconic 1987 movie of the same name where eight celebrities immerse themselves in the ultimate Dirty Dancing experience.
Set in Virginia's Mountain Lake Lodge, the real location for the film's fictional Kellerman's Lodge, the eight stars partner up and attempt to re-create classic scenes from the Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze-led (i.e. Frances "Baby" Houseman & "Johnny Castle") movie, including the legendary lift that cemented the film's spot in cinematic history. Throughout the four-week event special, the movie's memorable music and unforgettable fashion transport viewers back to the magical summer in 1963. The competition also features special guest judges who help decide which celebrity couples make it through and which couples are "put in a corner". In the end, one man and one woman are crowned the winning Frances "Baby" Houseman and "Johnny Castle" becoming "THE REAL DIRTY DANCING" champions.
