Its soundtrack generated two multi-platinum albums and multiple singles, including the Academy Award®-winning best original song (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life. Grossing more than $213 million worldwide, Dirty Dancing captured the hearts of audiences everywhere. 

Set in the summer of 1963, Baby Houseman (Jennifer Grey) and her family vacation to the beautiful Catskills resort, Kellerman’s.

It is a summer she’ll never forget.
