Step Up - Year Of The Dance



Step Up is an American romantic-dance anthology franchise. Based on characters created by Duane Adler, the franchise includes six films and a television series. The films have received a generally mixed critical reception, while being a box office success with a collective total of $651 million.




Step Up - Year of the Dance



Tyler Gage (Channing Tatum) receives the opportunity of a lifetime after vandalizing a performing arts school, gaining him the chance to earn a scholarship and dance with an up-and-coming dancer, Nora Clark (Jenna Dewan).


A group of flash mob dancers led by Sean (Ryan Guzman) and the daughter of a hotel tycoon, Emily (Kathryn McCormick), attempt to save a Miami strip populated by a tight-knit community from being developed into hotels.


Step Up: Year of the Dance is a 2020 Chinese produced and marketed film directed by Ron Yuan. Youth from different social classes in Beijing come together to form China's best dance crew and learn what it really means to be family. It was released in theaters internationally on June 26, 2019, and in the U.S. on digitally on January 21, 2020.[1]


The dance choreography is very good and everyone has some good swag. But it was missing the wildlife and somewhat inventive moves that wow you and makes the franchise so great. If anyone on this film were in a World of Dance contest, for example, they might pass just one spot in the best case scenario.


The new setting was a nice change of pace location wise. The dance sequences are entertaining as usual, and the fight scenes are great that I felt like I was watching The Raid Redemption version of Step Up. There were some unintentional comedy moments in this film, but they weren't enough for me to have a good time in a stupid way.


I only watched this for Meiqi, and god bless her, but even she couldn't escape the film's utter blandness. I'm sure they got a lot of seats filled thanks to her, although that followed three years of development hell.


This Chinese/American co-production is officially STEP UP part 6 even though it never came out in the US in theaters or on disc. When I found out it was available here digitally I finally caught up with it and was not disappointed. Directed by America's own Ron Yuan (BLADE OF THE 47 RONIN), it has a bunch of fight scenes mixed in with the dance battles. More importantly it captures the exact type of corniness and melodrama that makes this genre fun, but transported to a Chinese cultural context.


I'm aware of that the series is not perfect in terms of their scenario but in Step Up: Year of the Dance, all of the elements that make you enjoyed in other films (catchy soundtracks, good places or solid dance choreographies and etc.) are at their worst.


The couple met on the set of the 2006 dance movie, where she played a student at an arts high school and he played a kid from the wrong side of the tracks, doing community service at the school. They married three years after the film in 2009.


After getting into trouble with the law, Tyler is sent to do community service at the school, where he meets Nora Clark, a talented ballet dancer. Despite their differences, the two eventually fall in love and discover they have more in common than they first thought.


The film, set at the fictional Maryland School of Arts, follows misfit street dancer Andie West (Evigan), who enrolls in a premier institution and has to fight to fit in while also trying to keep her old lifestyle.


The story follows Moose Gage (Adam Gary) and Camille (Alyson Stoner) as they journey to New York University; the former dancer is majoring in electrical engineering after promising his father that he would not dance anymore.


However, things have changed; a real estate entrepreneur has chosen the location for his next project. When Emily learned that the business owner was his father, things got much worse for her. They took advantage of flash mob dancers led by Sean (Ryan Guzman) to protest against the construction.


When the iconic dance film, Step Up, hit theaters in 2006, fans immediately fell in love with the onscreen duo of then-star-in-the-making Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan. Between the pair's intense chemistry and the plot line involving a street dancer versus a trained ballerina, the film went on to span a franchise of five films that have recently seen an international adaptation and one TV series, which is now in its third season. As reported by Deadline, the third season of the spinoff TV series, Step Up: High Water, saw its premiere in October on the streaming service, Starz.


Despite fans' views that the sequel films have not lived up to the hype of the first, the step Up franchise has still seen its share of success. While Dewan and Tatum's only appearances come in the first film, with the exception of a small cameo from the latter in the second, the franchise does replace the pair with other actors who have similar chemistry and skill. What separates most of the films is which dancer is from the streets and which is an educated dancer. The theme of "the streets" is prevalent in all films.


The franchise is obviously full of dancing as are most movies about dance, but what makes the Step Up franchise unique is the different emphasis on the styles of dancing. From ballet to crunk, and even breakdancing, the franchise's choreography is one of the many redeeming qualities within all the films, despite critics' reviews. Here's where all the films rank in terms of popularity.


Step Up All In is the fifth film in the franchise and the one where most of the main cast from the previous films come back to form a new crew and fight a new battle. Andie (Briana Evigan) and Moose (Adam Sevani) from the second film return, and Sean (Ryan Guzman) from the fourth film, along with a few other dancers throughout the years, reprise their roles in this 2014 film. Sean is the main character in this film, and he finds himself taking his crew from Miami to Los Angeles, though his crew, The Mob, ends up returning to Miami after not finding much luck. Sean decides to stay in Los Angeles where he meets up with Moose and Andie as they form a new crew to battle for a three-year dance contract in Las Vegas.


In the third installment of the franchise, Step Up 3D, Moose and Camille (Alyson Stoner) are the only cast members to reprise their roles from previous films. New leads are cast as the main dancing partners: Sharni Vinson plays Natalie, and Rick Malambri plays Luke. What makes the third installment differ from the first two films is this one takes place not in high school, but in college in New York. Moose is an NYU freshman who helps rally a team to compete in a high-stakes showdown between the world's best hip-hop dancers. The film was given a theatrical release, though it bombed at the US box office until it was saved by the international release.


Step Up Revolution takes the franchise to Miami, Florida when the new lead, Emily (played by Kathryn McCormick), heads to the new city in hopes of pursuing a dance career. While she is there, she meets Sean, a leader of a flash-mob-style dance crew there in Miami. In this film, the threat is still between the budding romance of the two dancers, but it also deals with Emily's father whose construction company threatens Sean's neighborhood when they plan on tearing it down to put in a new development. Emily and Sean pair up with his group, The Mob, as they hope to use their dance as a way of protesting the possible build.


As you can guess from its name, Step Up 2: The Streets is the second film in the franchise. In opposition to the first film, the street dancer is the female lead while the trained dancer is the male lead. Robert Hoffman plays Chase, a sort of hybrid character of Dewan and Tatum from the first film in terms of his dancing abilities. His partner, Andie, played by Briana Evigan, is the cousin of Tatum's character, Gage. Gage convinces Andie to try out for a slot at the same art school where she finds herself starting her own street crew after being kicked out of her original one. The climax of the film, of course, shows a dance-off in the streets themselves of Andie's new crew, made up of the outcasts from the art school, and her old crew.


No surprise here that the original Step Up was the best film in the franchise. The film kick-started both lead actors' careers and brought the pair's onscreen chemistry offscreen, where Dewan and Tatum were married for many years before separating. The film stars Tatum as an untrained street dancer who gets caught vandalizing a prestigious art school theater. While he is working as a janitor at the school to pay for the damages, he finds himself standing-in as a dance partner alongside Dewan's character in her senior showcase. The unlikely pair turns the heads of many as what starts off as a dance partnership turns into a full-fledged romance that changes both characters for the better.


Since the original film came out in 2006, the Step Up franchise has become a saga that everyone either loves or loves to hate, centering around different dancers who all dare to dream big. This film spawned five films (technically six, but the sixth film is an international production that does not follow the continuity of the other five) that center around a different main character each time and a television series that was canceled but has since announced a revival.


Technically the final installment of the franchise (for now at least), this film centers around previous Step Up stars from different films coming together to form a team good enough to win a competition that could make all their dreams come true. This film not only brings in some new faces but sees the return of Ryan Guzman (Sean Asa from Step Up Revolution) and Briana Evigan (Andy from Step Up 2: The Streets) as well as members from each of their original dance crews. The cast also includes Adam Sevani and Alyson Stoner as Moose and Camille. This film received mixed reviews, grossing only $86.1 million worldwide. 041b061a72
