As I write these words, I’m am sitting in Firefly Cove, a small gated community in Lake Lure, North Carolina. From where I sit, I can see the remnants of a stone wall, what’s left of the clubhouse where much of the movie “Dirty Dancing” was filmed. Here, just off Boys Camp Road, was the “stand-in” for the Catskills club where Baby danced with bad boy Johnny Castle.
Hard to believe it’s been 35 years since “Dirty Dancing” first debuted on screens. It’s now making a return to celebrate that longevity.
