Dance, friends, struggles, fun…these are only some words used to describe the Step Up Movies Series. This series is entertaining, inspiring, and just PERFECT. The series contains 5 movies:
Step Up: the only Step Up movie I haven’t seen. It stars Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan. The movie is about Tyler Gage (Channing Tatum). Tyler is in and out of trouble for most of his life, but then he is sentenced to 200 hours of community service at The Maryland School of Arts. He soon falls for Nora (Jenna Dewan), a gifted ballet student. What happens next??? Watch the movie. (I need too).
Step Up 2: The Streets : This movie stars Briana Evigan, Robert Hoffman, and Adam Sevani. The movie centers around Angie (Briana Evigan), a hardcore, rebellious street dancer. Angie’s mom died when she was a child, and Angie’s life became a mess. She danced in a street crew all day and skipped school. Due to all of this, her current guardian threatened to send her to Texas to live with her grandparents. Angie has to enroll in The Maryland School of Arts, so she can get her life back on track. She finds it hard to balance her dance and school schedules and is kicked off her dance crew. She becomes friends with Moose (Adam Sevani), a student at MSA and a great dancer. He introduces Angie to Chase (Robert Hoffman), the school’s best and most popular dancer. However, Chase lives in the shadow of his ballet- dancing brother, and decides to start his own street crew. Soon, Angie, Chase, and Moose are competing against some of the best street dancers in the state. What happens next??? Watch the movie.
Step Up 3D: This movie stars Rick Malambri, Sharni Vinson, and Adam Sevani. The movie is about Luke (Rick Malambri), a dancer and aspiring filmmaker. He runs a secret dance studio for talented dancers and “city rejects” he finds on the streets. He picks people based on their love for dance and gives them a unique title- BFABB. BFABB stands for “Born From A Boombox”. He interviews each dancer and records their dancers to put in the new documentary he was making- Born From A Boombox. During a walk at the park, he finds Moose (yes, Moose from Step Up 2 ) dancing/battling against one of the best street dancers in New York. Luke takes Moose to his private dance studio, where he receives a letter from the city, stating that they were behind on their rent. Luke recruits Moose and his other dancers to form a dance group – The House of Pirates. He also recruits/falls for Natalie (Sharni Vinson), a beautiful young dancer. They soon learn that Natalie was only pretending to be on their side, to gather evidence on their dance routines for their rival crew- The House of Samurai. In the end, Natalie comes back, but can The House of Pirates win the World Jam competition and cash prize. Watch the movie to find out.
Step Up Revolution: This movie stars Ryan Guzman and Kathryn McCormick. The movie is about Sean (Ryan Guzman), a talented street dancer who is the head of Miami’s hottest and mysterious dance crews- The Mob. The Mob come up with creative flashmobs to perform around Miami and no one knows who they are. But when they learn their home town is being destroyed to make a more fancy living environment, they must use their dance routines for more then just entertainment, they need to use to dance to make a statement. Sean falls in love with Emily (Kathryn McCormick), a young dancer, who dreams of becoming a professional. Emily lacks originality in her dances and soon joins the Mob to learn more about creativity. The group later learns that Emily’s father owns the company that was trying to tear down their town. The entire crew befriends her, except Sean (who Emily leaves because she no longer trusts him), and their town is doom. Does the group get back together and save the community? Watch the movie to find out. PS : THIS WAS MY FAVORITE STEP UP MOVIE. The dances were not only unique, but they were used to make a statement. Dance was their voice into the world.
Step Up: All In: This movie stars Ryan Guzman, Briana Evigan, and Adam Sevani. The movie is about Sean and his group, The Mob. They come to LA to make it big, but learn that the world of professional dane is very difficult. The Mob gives up and moves back to Miami…well, everyone except for Sean. Sean learns about a dance battle called The Vortex and decides to form his own group and compete. We partners up with Moose, Angie, and other dancers from previous Step Up movies. He falls for Angie (yes, its the same Angie from Step Up 2) because Emily left him for her world tour. They learn that they are competing against Sean’s old group (The Mob) and an old rival (The Grim Knights). They go on a wild ride to Las Vegas, where love, friendships, loyalty, ad trust are tested. Can they get it together to win the contest and create a little stability in their dance careers or will it blow up in their faces? Watch the movie to find out. WATCH THIS MOVIE TOO. MY 2nd FAVORITE STEP UP MOVIE.
