** Later, when Vestron Pictures was looking for a corporate sponsor to help promote the film, Proctor & Gamble, manufacturers of Clearsil skin care and acne ointment, almost signed on feeling that it could be a vehicle to reach a teen target audience.

* IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine: Both Swayze and Grey previously worked together in ''Film/RedDawn1984'', though this is a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] as the two had fought constantly during that film and still held animosity towards each other. It was bad enough that the producers were worried about the love scenes looking real. Kenny Ortega previously choreographed ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'', which Grey also co-starred in. In addition, Orbach and Bishop previously worked together in ''Theatre/PromisesPromises''.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Jake is [[Series/LawAndOrder Briscoe]].
** Marge is [[GilmoreGirls Emily]].
** Penny is [[Film/{{Flashdance}} Tina Tech]].
** [[{{Seinfeld}} Newman]] is the resort's social director.
** This also applies to those working behind the scenes as well. Choreographer Kenny Ortega previously choreographed ''Film/StElmosFire'' and later went on to direct and choreograph ''{{Film/Newsies}}'' and ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'', while his assistant choreographer, Miranda Garrison, later went on to choreograph ''{{Film/Selena}}'', ''{{Film/Baseketball}}'', and ''Series/CarolineInTheCity''. In addition, director Emile Ardolino later went on to direct ''Film/SisterAct''. Also, music supervisor Michael Lloyd simultaneously worked as music producer for ''Series/{{Kidsongs}} ''[[note]](and, less meritoriously, provided the music score for the same year's ''Film/TheGarbagePailKidsMovie'')[[/note]], while producer Linda Gottlieb served as executive producer of ''Series/OneLifeToLive'' from 1991 to 1994.
** As far as ''Havana Nights'' is concerned, the main character's father and older sister are [[Series/MadMen Roger Sterling and Betty Draper]] respectively.
** The original script of the sequel, ''Havana Nights'', was written by none other than [[Radio/WaitWaitDontTellMe Peter Sagal]]. [[note]]The final product, by Sagal's admission, bears almost no resemblance to his script, as it was heavily rewritten to become more like Dirty Dancing to be the sequel.[[/note]]
* HeyItsThatVoice: Jake is also [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Lumiere]]
