May is here and that means Dirty Dancing is near! Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, High Hampton Inn has been a multi-generational mountain getaway for decades and recently served as a filming location for the Dirty Dancing remake.

The upcoming ABC TV remake will air on May 24th and High Hampton Inn is celebrating with a special viewing party.

 

Access to the exclusive event is $44 a person and includes a special dinner menu, games and dance lessons to help guests move and sway like Swayze. The festivities will also include a cash bar serving up hand-crafted cocktails inspired by the film. The event will make you feel as if you are the star, with the staff wearing custom Kellerman’s t-shirts. Guests are encouraged to dress in their best 50s and 60s attire.
