Get ready to have the time of your life at the Academy of Music. The Broadway version of Dirty Dancing is here in Philadelphia.

And if you are a fan of the moves, the music, and the romance, you are going to fall in love all over again.

Right now at the Academy of Music you can watch the classic, iconic story of Baby and Johnny on stage.

Dance captains and understudies Josh Drake and Phoebe Pearl step into the roles made famous by Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

Drake tells us, "People cry. People are still laughing when they leave. It's nostalgic stories that people love so much."

"Patrick made dancing cool for guys. So growing up I felt so much more comfortable in my skin seeing this movie," he said.

Action News got a sneak peek at some of the moves from the iconic finale where "no one puts baby in the corner," and she owns the stage.

The show is here until this Sunday, April 5th.
