It’s an iconic scene – the moment Dirty Dancing’s Patrick Swayze lifts Jennifer Grey above his head in the final minutes of the 1987 classic.

In the movie, their characters, Johnny and Baby, practiced the scene all summer long.

However, according to People Magazine, in real life, Grey says they never rehearsed the move at all!

“Never rehearsed it, never done it since. I don’t know how all these people who reenact it have the guts to throw themselves into the arms of anyone other than Patrick Swayze. It’s insane!”

Channing Tatum is one of those people, who perfectly pulled off the dance move with his dog!
