Our favourite cinematic dance steps, inspired by Damsels in DistressIn Whit Stillman’s new film Damsels in Distress, Violet (Greta Gerwig) has her heart set on starting a dance craze called The Sambola.  Her creation involves a clockwise spin for a count of 8, a tango for 6, face-to-face for 2 and then cha-cha for 8. “If you can count to 8 you can do the Sambola!” says the on-screen title as the dance begins. In that spirit, Nathalie Atkinson surveys her favourite cinematic hot steps.
