The book is a celebration of this hit movie from the fans' point of view. The focus is on how the movie had such a positive impact on the lives of so many people and why it continues to be so popular after over twenty years.

The book includes twenty two interviews of fans from all over the world, three interviews of people working at two of the film locations, a special interview of Jackie Horner-- dance pro/entertainment icon who served as a consultant to the movie, an interview of Steve Schwartz who was Jackie Horner’s dance partner, and the author’s story of her strong connection to the movie. There is background information regarding how the movie was made that was gathered by the author while visiting one of the film locations, Mountain Lake Hotel in Virginia and by researching multiple media sources. Also, the book contains information on the many forms Dirty Dancing has taken since the movie--including the stage show, a folklore section regarding fascinating tidbits about the filming and cast, photos, archives, results of an online survey, and an in-depth bibliography.   

 Even the most avid Dirty Dancing fan will learn something new. Finally, best of all, one will experience the heart and soul connection of the movie once again! 

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book is being donated to the Patrick Swayze Pancreas Cancer Research Fund at Stanford Cancer Center.
