100 Greatest Harry Potter Moments
99. McGonagall’s Dance Lesson
Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire (2005)
The Moment: In preparation for the Yule Ball, Professor McGonagall attempts to teach her young charges a little decorum, starting with an impromptu walz lesson, assisted by a thoroughly embarrassed Ron. With much of McGonagall’s role revolving around House discipline, its nice to see her enjoying a bit of humour for a change.
Better On Film? Maggie Smith has one of the less showy roles in the series, but she is never less than excellent whenever she is on-screen. This laugh-out-loud scene is no different.
