Julie Stiles Performs Famous “Save the Last Dance” Routine on SNL

Welcome to Juilliard

Julie Stiles proves that she still has street credit with a surprise performance of her iconic “Save the Last Dance” routine during Weekend Update on SNL.

The “Save the Last Dance” star appeared during a “Weekend Update” sketch to help “SNL” cast member Chloe Fineman demonstrate her idea for an “intimate” holiday gift.

“The perfect holiday gift this year is the dance that Julia Stiles does at the end of the 2001 movie ‘Save the Last Dance,’” Fineman told “Weekend Update” anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che.

Julie hasn’t made an appearance on SNL since she made her debut on the show as host in 2001 with musical guest Aerosmith!

“Save the Last Dance” stars Stiles, Kerry Washington and Sean Patrick Thomas. The movie follows Stiles’ Sara, who after a family tragedy moves to the south side of Chicago where she navigates a new relationship and pursues her passion for dance.
