I’ve long expressed my love of hip hop dance films. If you’ve ever wondered just who’s spending money to go see the movies in the STEP UP franchise, well, count me in that demographic. I like their combination of sick dance routines, hot dancing chicks and positive, uplifting messages about acceptance. I’ll fight anyone who says otherwise – and by fight I mean challenge to a dance off, obviously. I, for one, can’t wait for the fourth in the series, STEP UP 4EVER, which is slated for release sometime next year. I’m sure it’ll feature a lot of moves inspired by the dancing at events like the Notorious IBE (The Notorious International Breakdance Event) b-boy contest in Holland.
