In the summer of 1963, Frances "Baby" Houseman (Jennifer Grey) is vacationing with her affluent Jewish American family at Kellerman's, a family friendly resort in the Catskill Mountains. Baby is the youngest of two daughters, and plans to attend Mount Holyoke College to study economics in underdeveloped countries and then enter the Peace Corps. She was named after Frances Perkins, the first woman in the U.S. Cabinet. Her father, Jake (Jerry Orbach), is the personal physician and friend of Max Kellerman (Jack Weston), the resort proprietor. Baby is befriended by Max's snotty, sarcastic grandson Neil (Lonny Price).
Baby meets and develops a crush on the resort's dance instructor, Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze). Johnny is the leader of the resort's working-class entertainment staff. Baby encounters Johnny's kindhearted cousin Billy on a walk through the resort grounds, and helps him carry watermelons to the staff quarters. The staff hold secret after-hours parties in their quarters, and Baby is surprised by the "dirty dancing" they engage in.〔(【引用サイトリンク】url=http://dance.lovetoknow.com/Learn_How_to_Dirty_Dance )〕 Intrigued, Baby receives a brief, impromptu dance lesson from Johnny.
Baby and Neil go to the kitchens for a late-night snack, where Baby finds Johnny's dance partner, Penny Johnson (Cynthia Rhodes), huddled in a dark corner in tears. Baby makes an excuse to Neil and runs to find Billy. Billy and Johnny carry Penny back to her quarters. Billy explains that Penny is pregnant by Robbie Gould (Max Cantor), a womanizing waiter who is also dating Baby's older sister, Lisa (Jane Brucker) and several other female guests. Robbie plans to do nothing about the pregnancy or give Penny money for a quiet, although illegal, abortion. Johnny offers Penny his salary, but she says it won't be enough, and she won't take his pay anyway.
Baby borrows the money from her father to pay for Penny's illegal abortion. Jake agrees to give the money to Baby even though she says she can't tell him what it's for. Jake has always trusted his daughter.
Penny refuses the money at first, and Johnny treats Baby's offer with disdain since she ran to her rich daddy for help. Penny finally agrees, but says there is another issue. Johnny and Penny perform a weekly dance at the Sheldrake, another nearby resort. Penny will miss her performance if she goes for the abortion, and they will forfeit their salary for the season. Billy suggests that Baby fill in for her. Johnny scoffs at this, which overcomes Baby's initial resistance. Billy and Penny insist that Johnny can teach anyone to dance. Johnny begins to teach Baby the Mambo, and the two spend several awkward practice sessions together. Baby gradually begins to improve, and a romantic attraction grows between them.
Billy takes Penny to a traveling doctor for the abortion while Baby and Johnny perform at the Sheldrake Hotel. Their performance is mostly successful, although Baby is too nervous to accomplish the dance's climactic lift.
Johnny and Baby return to Kellerman's and find Penny in agony. Billy explains that the "doctor" turned out to be a back-alley hack who caused severe damage to Penny and left her in agonizing pain. Penny says she can't go to the hospital because they would notify the police. Baby brings her father to help Penny, but when Johnny takes responsibility for Penny, Jake mistakenly takes Johnny for the father. Jake treats Penny, but is angry that Baby used his money to pay for the procedure, and forbids Baby to associate with Johnny or his friends. He is angry and hurt because Baby lied to him and betrayed his trust.
Baby goes to Johnny to apologize for the way her father treated him. Johnny says it doesn't matter, because people like him don't matter. He says he admires people like her who think they can change the world. Baby protests and says she's afraid of many things - especially the idea that she may never again feel the way she feels when she's with him. She asks him to dance with her, and they share an intimate "dirty dance" that leads to lovemaking.
Jake, still angry and ignoring his daughter, tells his family they'll be leaving early over breakfast. Lisa protests, because she wants to sing at the end-of-season talent show. Jake gives in, and Baby continues to see Johnny despite her father's warning. She pulls Johnny off the footpath when her father is nearby, and Johnny is hurt that she won't stand up for him to her father. Robbie sees them during their argument and makes a derisive remark about "going slumming" with the staff (a referral to his own affair with Penny). Johnny jumps off the porch and beats Robbie up.ogether and makes a rude comment about Baby. This causes Johnny to become angry and beat him up.
Johnny is accused of stealing a wallet from Moe Pressman, a Kellerman's guest, and is unable to provide a verifiable alibi. To save Johnny from being fired, Baby confesses that Johnny could not committed the theft because she was with him in his cabin that night. Johnny is cleared of the theft after it's revealed that Mr. and Mrs. Schumacher stole Moe's wallet. Max fires Johnny anyway for having an affair with a guest. Baby and Johnny embrace and bid farewell, saying they'll never regret their affair.
Baby and her parents watch the end-of-season talent show. Jake bids farewell to Robbie, and wishes him well in medical school. He gives Robbie an envelope of money to help with his school expenses. In turn, Robbie then thanks him for helping with the Penny situation and says you never know with her kind if she's telling the truth, but it might have been his. Jake is disgusted and yanks the envelope away.
The staff of Kellerman's and guest are singing together when the door opens and Johnny walks in. He's returned to do the last dance of the season.〔 Johnny pulls Baby out of her chair, saying, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner," to Jake. He and Baby take the stage, where Johnny announces, "Sorry about the disruption, folks, but I always do the last dance of the season. This year somebody told me not to. So I'm gonna do my kind of dancin' with a great partner, who's not only a terrific dancer, but somebody who taught me that there are people willing to stand up for other people no matter what it costs them. Somebody who taught me about the kind of person I want to be: Miss Frances Houseman."〕
Baby and Johnny dance a provocative duet and the other "dirty dancers" join in. Baby runs to Johnny and executes the illusive lift move they'd practiced. The Dirty Dancers pull guests from their seat to join in the celebration. Jake apologizes to Johnny for thinking he got Penny pregnant, and reconciles with Baby. The film ends with the entire cast dancing joyously to "(I've Had) The Time of My Life".
