But Fever also pre-figures a cycle of rather more conservative ''teen musicals''
that include films like Grease (dir: Randal Kleiser, 1978), Grease 2 (dir: Patricia
Birch, 1982), Flashdance (dir: Adrian Lyne, 1983), Footloose (dir: Herbert Ross,
1984) and Dirty Dancing (dir: Emile Ardolino, 1987). Rather than deconstructing
the genre or providing a critical perspective, as Jane Feuer puts it, ''the teen
musicals of the 1980s represent(ed) a 'reconstruction' ... of the conventions of the

argued to be present in the film in a kind of pastiche. The folk musical is present
in the semantics of the emphasis on the nuclear family and the nostalgic locale of
a real ...

generalisation, but I am more interested in how the labour of dance training gets
erased in performance and performance reception and how that contributes to
the materialisation of the Sublime. Susan Leigh Foster ... Dirty Dancing 2:
