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 »
This is a great little movie. As somebody else wrote, the chemistry between the leads was wonderful. In a way this shouldn't be compared with the first Center Stage, which was more like Fame (trials and tribulations of an ensemble at an arts school, in this case a dance academy).
CS: Turn It Up is really a dance romance, which we haven't seen for a while (Step Up 2 wasn't very romantic). The first Center Stage was very cheesy, while this one is much lower on the cheese scale.
There's a great sweetness to the lead couple's relationship, and while they are clearly great dancers rather than experienced actors, they're very natural with each other.
Highly recommended and very satisfying (and the music is GREAT--I thought it was even better than the first Center Stage's soundtrack, which was also very good.)
