Sharing Our Favorite Things – Our Favorite Movies

BOWA Our Favorite Things There’s nothing like a big, musical movie number to get your toes tapping. It’s even better when the leading man and leading lady nail the big jump!  In 1987’s iconic film Dirty Dancing the last dance of the summer is filled with the joy of music and movement. We cant wait to be able to dance together again. Until then we think this dancer’s solo interpretation of the classic scene may have you rolling in the aisles.

Since we’re all in this together, we thought it would be fun to share a few of our favorite things to bring a smile to your face and help you pass the time!

This week’s list includes some of the BOWA Team’s favorite movies, from dramas to thrillers to comedies and more. It’s a great time to curl up on the couch and discover a classic, rewatch a favorite or find something new! Read on to find out which of us prefers Twizzlers to popcorn.
