3. Footloose (1984)
Back before everyone had six degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon, there was the Footloose and fancy-free Ren (Kevin Bacon) who moves to a small Mid-West town where dancing and rock ‘n roll has been banned.
Of course, Ren has to rebel and finally teach the hyper-religious town that dancing and music is not evil. While he doesn’t influence the whole town, along the way he gets some people dancing for the first time in their lives.
