Frances, or Baby (Grey), is an idealistic Jewish teenager vacationing with her wealthy family at Kellerman's, a fictional resort in the Catskill Mountains of New York in the summer of 1963. One evening stirring music draws her to the staff quarters, where "dirty dancing" is all the rage. Here she meets Johnny (Swayze), a gentile dance instructor, who is as experienced as she is na´ve. Baby soon becomes Johnny's pupil in dance and in love. But the two are from different worlds, and Baby's father disapproves.
