David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly Rehearsing the Ballroom Dance scene in Labyrinth

Labyrinth will always go down as being one of the classics when it comes to the fantasy genre.  Like The Dark Crystal or The Neverending Story, Labyrinth was an exquisite collection of scenery, characters, and storylines that most movies in the 80s had never seen before.  Add to that the genius of Jim Henson and his characters, you can see why Labyrinth has remained a classic to this day.  You can also see why a reboot is in the works.

What’s even more bittersweet about the film is one of its stars, David Bowie.  It’s the first movie where we really got a sense of the musician’s acting prowess.   His character Jareth will go down as one of the best villains in cinematic history.  His nemesis, Jennifer Connelly, went on to a fantastic acting career as well.

In any event, I stumbled across some old footage of Bowie and Connelly rehearsing a ballroom dancing scene from the movie that you might remember.  It’s interesting to watch if for no other reason than nostalgia.
