Trivia

The dancers for the film were divided in to teams and rehearsed at both "Millennium Dance Studio/ Complex" and "Debbie Allen Dance Academy" two world renowned dance studios. This was done to keep the various dance crews separate and lend authenticity to their now legendary dance battles on screen. See more »

Goofs

During The Big Bounce sequence, the dancer that does the "slow motion windmill" throws his hat at Wade before doing the move, but the hat reappears and disappears on his head in subsequent shots. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Mr. Rad: Time. Yeah. Now that's what I'm talking about. Yeah! I like it like this. These two crews right here is what I call bad. I'm talking bad as in utter bad. But it's up to you to decide which crew walks away with this here $600 in the hat.
[crowd cheers]
Mr. Rad: Okay, let's settle down. Let's settle down, now. Now, by round of applause, you decide who the baddest crew is tonight. Let's hear it for Vick's crew.

dance!
4 September 2005 | by wendywendy_11See all my reviews

Okay, it is not a good movie. I agree. But this is also not a movie one should go to with high expectations. Come on!

This one is about being young, about music, and above all: about dance. And it is a good one in the latter. So stop whining about the shortcomings of the story (if any at all). It's about dance, and man, can they dance!

I can actually imagine people think this movie really sucks. But hell, if one does not want to look at a dance movie, why go and see this one?

This movie is not a pretentious one. So why judge it on something that it is not trying to be (A great movie with a great story).
