A group of 12 teenagers from various backgrounds enroll at the American Ballet Academy in New York to make it as ballet dancers and each one deals with the problems and stress of training and getting ahead in the world of dance.
G4's "Attack of the Show" star Candice Bailey auditioned for the film. During a director call back, she had to dance. During which she fell on her face. See more »
At the beginning of the movie there is a dance scene taking place in the streets of Detroit, in it cars are shown with front and back Michigan license plates. In Michigan there are no front license plates only rear ones. See more »
Something about this movie just gets me every time and I've watched it over and over.
Great dancing (ballet, hip hop, tango and jazz), great characters, great love story. Obviously fans of dance movies will enjoy it but I recommend CS: Turn It Up for other audiences also. It has an edgier feel than Center Stage 1 but fans of that movie should see this as Cooper returns and his dancing is AMAZING.
Yes it has hip hop but it's not the same old hip hop v. ballet movie. There's no battle between the hip hop and ballet dance styles lol. It's more subtle the way the different dance scenes are included, and almost like a documentary in the way it's filmed.
But that doesn't really sum it up. You just have to watch the whole movie--it all ties up so well and brings a tear to the eye. :-) See it!
