His best friends are Mac Carter and his little brother Skinny Carter and they used to hang around together, going to parties and stealing cars. After being expelled from a party, the trio breaks in the Maryland School of Arts and commits vandalism, destroying the stage.

When Tyler is dancing in the last dance, after he lifts Nora he puts on a shirt and his hat. When he puts on his hat, the cap is turned to the left, one shot later the cap of the hat is turned backwards. See more »
My cousin heather wanted to go to this movie, so she took me with her. I thought the movie was going to suck, but it ended up...that it was one of the best movies i seen all year. I really recommend that you watch this movie. The movie was based on two people, both from their own worlds. The world of break dancing, and the world of ballet. Comes together and falls in love. When Tyler is ditching his friends for Nora, they got mad at him. But they grow closer when "skinny" gets shot by a gang. With the loss of skinny behind them both...they go on again...but he doesn't forget his friends. So again...from a guy who is not sensitive..i recommend step up.
