Looking for great dance movies

I have been trying to find great dance scenes in movies. I have been watching a lot of movies lately. I was wondering if anybody could offer any suggestions. Of course, Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly movies are great and I have gone through them all. The Nicholas Brothers are great also. In addition, there is Dirty Dancing, Step Up 2, Strictly Ballroom, Saturday Night Fever, Flashdance, Pulp Fiction, and a lot of other well known titles. However, I was wondering if people had lesser known movies with great dance scenes.

Sweet Charity has some of the coolest dance sequences ever, directed by the original Broadway version's great Bob Fosse.

The girls get up on the bar a couple of times and do some kind of line dancing.

The "Big Spender" number is just one of several fantastic dance segments in the film. I actually was referring to the numbers at the club (the scene with Ricardo Montalban), e.g., "Rich Man's Frug," etc., where if you look carefully you'll see a young Ben Vereen in his first screen role.
