Storyline

Sara joins Julliard in New York to fulfill her and her mother's dream of becoming the Prima ballerina of the school. She befriends her roommates, Zoe and Miles, who teach hip-hop classes. She has ballet classes with the rigid and famous Monique Delacroix that she idolizes - Monique requires full commitment, discipline and hard work from her students. When Miles, who is a composer, invites Sara to help him compose the music for the dance choreography Sara's passion for hip-hop is sparked and she also falls in love with Miles. When she is assigned to perform Giselle in an important event, she feels divided between the technique of the ballet and the creative work offered by Miles. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Izabella Miko and the Dance Choreography Make It Worth
25 May 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sara (Izabella Miko) joins Julliard in New York to fulfill hers and her mother dream and become the prima ballerina of the school. She befriends her roommate Zoe (Aubrey Dollar) and Miles (Columbus Short), who gives classes of hip-hop. She has ballet classes with the rigid and famous Monique Delacroix (Jacqueline Bisset) that she idolizes and Monique requires full commitment, discipline and hard work from her students. When Miles, who is a composer that researches sounds, invites Sara to help him in the dance choreography of his music, Sara's passion for hip- hop arises and she falls in love for Miles. When she is assigned to perform Giselle in an important event, she feels divided between the technique of the ballet and the creative work offered by Miles.

"Save the Last Dance 2" is a messy romance, full of incoherencies. For example, Sara's dream has always been to join Julliard and become the prima ballerina. Her mother died while driving to see her audition. However, when she has just accomplished success and recognition, she concludes that ballet is a mechanical repetition of steps and movements and she throws her promising career in the garbage in an absurd impulse. The relationship between Miles and Monique is ridiculous. I could list many other flaws in the story, but "Save the Last Dance 2" is also pleasant and entertaining if the viewer does not think much about the plot. Last but not the least, Izabella Miko and the dance choreography make it worth. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "No Balanço do Amor 2" ("In the Swing of Love 2")
