A young rebel rides into town alone and starts a dancing revolution against the wishes of the local elites, who think this youthful hedonism is all too much – the plot of the Kevin Bacon classic Footloose clearly bears no similarities to the world of today.

But wait.

As the film that encouraged us all to cut our feet loose celebrates its 30th anniversary on Feb. 17, it's time to imagine a modern update. No, not the 2011 remake that is – unconscionably – the No. 1 Google result for "Footloose."

Instead, let's envision a different new Footloose, one that stars the one woman in America whose dance moves (solo or otherwise) can still cause a stir.

We've taken the trouble to mock up some storyboards for this million-dollar idea below. Check them out, and then give us a call, Hollywood!
