About Dirty Dancing - The Classic Story on Stage

Have the time of your life at Dirty Dancing in London in 2023. The sensational dance-fuelled musical returns, and you're invited to Kellerman's resort in the West End. Book Dirty Dancing tickets on TodayTix today.

Londoners can’t get enough of Dirty Dancing. With its heart-pounding music, thrilling dance routines, glittering pink neon signs and That Lift, the Dirty Dancing musical just like watching the film play out on stage. See every dance step and hear every line you love recreated in the West End.

London Theatre said it’s like a “joyful and nostalgic time capsule. It's irresistible theatrical time travel.” So what are you waiting for? Put your pedal pushers on, and go back in time with Johnny and Baby in Dirty Dancing.

Adapted by Eleanor Bergstein from her Dirty Dancing screenplay, the story follows 17-year-old Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman as she heads to the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York on holiday. At first, she’s not bothered by the events and classes but that all changes when she lays eyes on resort dance instructor, Johnny Castle. Baby’s world is about to change forever in this challenging summer, but ultimately it’ll be the summer of her life.

Nobody puts Baby in the corner! Book Dirty Dancing tickets in London on TodayTix.

Dirty Dancing matinees begin at 3:00pm and 5:00pm. Dirty Dancing evening performances begin at 7:30pm and 8:30pm.

Tell Me More

West End audiences love Dirty Dancing. The show broke box-office records when Dirty Dancing premiered in the West End in 2006. Then, in 2022, thousands of audiences fell in love with Baby and Johnny’s story once more. Fans of the Dirty Dancing film and musical theatre lovers can now experience this iconic story in front of their eyes.

The Dirty Dancing film set the world alight in the 1980s, and the Dirty Dancing songs captured the hearts of a generation. Eleanor Bergstein’s stage adaptation attracts a new generation to the Dirty Dancing story with its political and social storylines, while also remaining faithful to the original blockbuster. By the end of Dirty Dancing, you will have experienced life in 1960s America and wish you could stay at summer camp.

Watch out for Austin Wilks’s exciting, authentic choreography, which uses 1960s trends while incorporating modern moves. There’s also 1960s-inspired costumes too. Imagine you’re visiting Kellerman’s at Dirty Dancing and wear your ponchos, cat-eye sunglasses, and pose with a peace sign outside the theatre before the show.

Carry your own watermelon to the Dominion Theatre, and book tickets to Dirty Dancing on TodayTix today.

What to Watch For:

  • The original Dirty Dancing movie inspired future works. The 1988 Dirty Dancing television series adapted the film with a few tweaks, notably Baby and Johnny not falling in love straight away. There was also the New Kids on the Block song “Dirty Dancing,” and a spin-off film, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights.
  • Both the Dirty Dancing film and musical are written by Eleanor Bergstein. She was inspired to create Dirty Dancing after her 1980 film — It's My Turn — had erotic scenes cut in production.
  • Listen to over 35 hit songs in Dirty Dancing including “Hey Baby,” “She’s Like The Wind,” and “Stay.” The film soundtrack went platinum once the film was released.
  • "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" won Dirty Dancing an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Grammy Award.
