Plot – The Houseman family - father, mother and two girls - go to the East Coast to spend a quiet holiday. Here, the sixteen-years-old Baby Houseman gets a little bored. One evening, while the hotel guests dance, Baby discovers the area designed for the staff, where the personnel perform wild dances. The boss and animator is a handsome young man, Johnny Castle, who works as a dancing-master for the hotel guests with his partner Penny Johnson. The young Baby is fascinated by the warmth and rhythms of those dances. Meanwhile Penny, impregnated by a waiter, decides to have an abortion, but she risks to die because of the unskillful intervention of a swindler. Baby, who already asked his father to lend her $250 to help Penny, still counts on him to save her, because he is a doctor. The two girls become friends without jealousy - for Penny the dancing-master is just a loyal co-worker - because love blossoms between Baby and Johnny. Moreover, Baby replaces Penny quite well in the mambo that the new couple performs in a special number at a hotel. Later Johnny, who is deeply in love with Baby, gets fired because his relationship with the girl gets discovered, but the last day of the holidays Johnny goes back to the hotel to see Baby again and together they perform a wild mambo.
