Corrected entry: When Baby and Johnny leave the resort to go and practise balancing over the creek in the forest, it's pouring rain when they're leaving. however, when Johnny realises that his keys are in the car, he goes over to knock the pipe out of the ground with his foot and it's sunny over there, three feet away from the car.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Baby and Billy first walk into the staff dance, the guy that is with the girl with the black shirt (that is hanging off on one side) - his shirt keeps going from on to off. When you see him in the background it is on and when you see him close up it is off.
Corrected entry: As they pull into Kellermans' they park on the left hand side of the road however in the next shot they are parked on the right hand side of the road.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Penny is taking a dance class (the one when she tells the men to dance in one circle and the women to dance in another, and when she yells STOP they have to dance with whoever they're next to. Baby nearly gets to dance with her Dad, but ends up with the little old thief woman), there is a microphone on view at the top of the screen for practically the whole scene. Visible in the video.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Johnny busts the car window open with the bottom of the light pole, you can see that it makes a perfect circle. Most likely, the whole window would have shattered, not left a perfect hole the same size as the pole.
Corrected entry: This movie is supposed to take place in the sixties when dirty dancing wasn't allowed. However, the last dance is danced to a song that wasn't released until the eighties?
Corrected entry: In the last dance scene in the movie, you see the two old ladies dancing together, one with a blue dress and one with a silver dress. However, in the scene where Baby sees Johnny and Penny dancing together for the first time, there are the two old ladies, wearing the exact same dresses, standing together.
Corrected entry: When Johnny realises he has locked his keys in the car, he breaks the window to open the door for Baby. But you can see her throughout the shot, and she doesn't move while she's in the car. However, Johnny opens the driver's side door, even though Baby didn't move to open it. So he didn't really have to break the window, if his door was already open.
Corrected entry: In the last dance scene, you clearly see Billy put on a record (I've had the time of my Life) for the dance. Later, while the same song is still playing they show band members playing the music. Did they join in mid-song?
Corrected entry: In the scene where they are setting up for the final show and Baby is painting a tree, there is no paint on her brush.

Corrected entry: In the final scene of the movie, you see Johnny and his friend put on a record (for "I Had the Time of My Life"). Even though it is the same song continuing, the manager later asks the band leader "Do you have sheet music on this?" even though it is a record and there are no singers present.
Corrected entry: When Baby and Johnny are balancing on the log over the creek, you see a blue fall mat visible at the bottom of the screen.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Johnny and Baby are in the dance studio, Johnny puts the records down twice, once when he agrees to do the dance and the second time when Neil is saying to Baby, "He's hard to talk to but the ladies seem to like him" (you see him do this in the mirror) and then we see him slam the lid to the record player down, which scares Baby.
Corrected entry: When Baby is getting dressed for the big end of season show, we see her pulling on stockings and attaching them to garters. But when her skirt flies up in the big dance finale - no garters.
