Step Up 2 - The Streets

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 * * *

About the movie:
Rebellious newcomer Andie (Evigan) is an outcast trying to fit in at the elite Maryland School of the Arts while still holding onto her old dream of dancing with an underground Baltimore street crew. The school’s hottest talent Chase (Hoffman) is a rising star who’s looking to break out of his mold – by forming a crew to compete in Baltimore’s biggest, most raw street dancing battle, “The Streets.” Now, as chase joins forces with Andie, the two simultaneously clash & sizzle, sending Andie’s two worlds into collision. With the pressure heating up on the dance floor & in her life, she must learn to build a bridge between love & loyalty, between freedom & opportunity, between who she is & who she believes she can be.

Being "street smart" is not always about getting the best education, attending university and getting a degree paper because even the brightest academic students can also learn from others who don't have the background education up bringing and vice versa. In this example every body learnt that it's easy "to be themselves" rather than being somebody else they are not.

This movie is heaps better than watching the TV series "So You Think You can Dance" because the actors and actresses can really dance, even better than Michael Jackson. Each individual moves and grooves brings uniquness and fresh individual expressions of their passion for music.
