It's the day we've all been waiting for—"Step Up; High Water" has officially launched on YouTube, and everything about this series (from the dancing to the drama) is completely #savage. The show captures all the elements that made us fall in love with the original "Step Up" almost eleven years ago, while also introducing fresh and exciting new components.
We especially love how the creators use the show to shine a spotlight on real life issues teens struggle with, that aren't always addressed in mainstream media. Characters deal with everything from disabilities to coming to terms with their sexual orientation and finding self-acceptance. Creating a dance series that incorporates such weighty subject matter also adds another dimension to the dancing.
And don't get us started on the all-star cast of beyond talented dancers. NE-YO, Naya Rivera, Faizon Love, and Jade Chynoweth bring their all with high-energy performances that we can't even begin to do justice to by talking about. So enough jabbering. Grab some popcorn, settle into your most comfortable stretching position, and watch the first episode RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW. Don't be too surprised if you binge straight through this dance-tastic series!
