22 Years Ago, Patrick Swayze And His Wife Dancing Moved Millions To Tears

This happened over two decades ago, but it will always be one of the most romantic dances the world has ever seen. Ever since the release of Dirty Dancing, Patrick Swayze has been associated with dancing. Something about his image became cemented in this art form after the raging success of the iconic movie. In addition to his prowess as an actor, Swayze proved that his skills also translated into the world of dance. His performance in the movie was transformative, inspiring, and memorable.

In 1994, Swayze would unveil his dancing skills once again at the World Music Awards. This time, the actor would perform something even more spellbinding and intimate than before. The remarkable performance is still being talked about today. It was an event that had never occurred on international television before.

With millions of international viewers, Patrick Swayze danced to the famous Whitney Houston song “All The Man That I Need”. Instead of dancing with a fellow actress or dancer, Swayze performed the song with his beloved wife, Lisa Niemi. This was the first time that the couple had danced to the song together. Although Dirty Dancing had been released seven years in the past, Patrick Swayze still brought the heat. He was still a force to be reckoned with.

Fortunately, this performance in 1994 was caught on film and has since become immortalized. The performance stands as a testimony to the bond that Swayze and his wife shared as well as the actor’s superior dancing abilities. Although Swayze passed away nearly a decade ago, his legacy lives on. This couple’s shared love and emotions can be seen articulated through this intimate dance.

Patrick and Lisa first met in the early 1970s. Patrick’s mother, a dance instructor, was offering lessons to Lisa. After several years of dating, the couple decided to get hitched and enjoyed 34 years of happy marriage together. Everybody was able to witness the sheer joy the two shared together. It’s difficult to find a famous couple who shared so much intimacy and love.
