A woman has been arrested for testing out her acting — and possibly dancing — skills in Florida. 

Cindy Barrientos, 24, was arrested on Sept. 17 after she and another woman allegedly tried to re-enact a scene from 1987 film “Dirty Dancing" inside a liquor store in Jensen Beach, according to cops.

Police were called on two individuals who were “believed to be intoxicated and causing a disturbance,” authorities said. 

The manager successfully asked the pair to leave, but the women reportedly returned, trying to buy alcohol. 

Police said Barrientos smelled like liquor and had bloodshot eyes when she was placed under arrest.

The "Dirty Dancing" scene the pair was trying to act out was not specified by cops, but it was possibly the famous "lift" in the film's climax.

Barrientos was charged with disorderly intoxication.
