There are few moments in our lives when we are ever truly in synch with another person. Dancers come so close to that kind of total connection, but only one couple ever truly captured the spirit of true connection.
In 1994, Patrick Swayze and his wife, Lisa Nieme, achieved the most beautiful synchronicity on stage as the world watched with gaping jaw.
Together, they swayed to the song “All The Man That I Need” in tribute to pop music icon Whitney Houston. Just a few years before, Dirty Dancing had been released and Patrick Swayze was the man of everyone’s dreams.
Although millions of women (and probably some men) idolized him, he only had eyes for one person and she was gliding across the stage right next to him.
Watch the performance of a lifetime between these two beautiful dancers on the next page…
Their partnership was the stuff of fairy tales. They met for the first time in 1970, when Patrick was 18 years old and Niemi was 14.
She was taking dance lessons from Swayze’s mother at the time. It didn’t take long for their young love to blossom into a full-blown romance. Five years later, the couple were married on June 12, 1975
Although their marriage would last 34 years, fate parted the lovers after Swayze lost his battle battle with stage IV pancreatic cancer on September 14, 2009 at the age of 57.
In 1994, at the World Music Awards, and for the first time on international television, Swayze danced with his wife Lisa in what many would consider one of the most romantic dances ever televised.
It’s no secret that they were in love and that their love for one another never wavered throughout their 34-year marriage.
Watch it again and relive a moment of absolute love between soulmates:
