Over 20 Years Ago, Patrick Swayze And His Wife Gave A Performance That Will Live On Forever
Just when I thought it couldn't get any better than Patrick Swayze in "Dirty Dancing," I find this amazingly heartfelt video. Although Swayze was clearly a fabulous dancer, he was also so much more. Swayze was around dance from day one; his mother owned a dance studio and earned acclaim as the choreographer for the 1980 blockbuster "Urban Cowboy," starring John Travolta. Swayze also completed formal dance training at the prestigious Joffrey Ballet School in New York City. However, even more impressive than Swayze's dance moves and acting was his unwavering love for his wife, Lisa Niemi. The pair met at his mom's dance studio as teenagers, married five years later, and stayed devoted to each other for 34 years until his untimely death.
