You Guys, the Step Up 5 Cast Is Ridiculous
Have you guys seen the cast list for Step Up 5?
We heard a little while ago that the latest installment of the series would bring back some of our old Step Up friends. We didn't know it would involve quite this many.
Two days ago Summit Entertainment announced that the film would star Ryan Guzman (Step Up Revolution) as Sean and Briana Evigan (Step Up 2: The Streets) as Andie. Good start. But then they kept going.
I'm just going to list out the rest of the cast, because really, they need no introductions:
Moose: Adam Sevani (Step Up 2 The Streets, Step Up 3D, Step Up Revolution)
Eddy: Misha Gabriel (Step Up Revolution)
Camille: Alyson Stoner (Step Up, Step Up 3D)
Jason: Stephen 'tWitch' Boss (Step Up 3D, Step Up Revolution)
Jenny Kido: Mari Koda (Step Up 2: The Streets, Step Up 3D, Step Up Revolution)
Hair: Chris Scott (Step Up 2: The Streets, Step Up 3D)
Monster: Luis Rosado (Step Up 2: The Streets, Step Up 3D)
Vladd aka Robot Guy: Chadd Smith (Step Up 3D, Step Up Revolution)
The Santiago Twins: Martin Lombard & Facundo Lombard (Step Up 3D)
Marc 'Marvelous' Inniss (Step Up Revolution)
Nolan Padilla (Step Up Revolution)
Phillip Chbeeb (Step Up Revolution)
Bianca Brewton (Step Up Revolution)
Tony Bellissimo (Step Up 3D, Step Up Revolution)
Josue 'Beastmode' Figueroa (Step Up 3D, Step Up Revolution)
Brandy Lamkim (Step Up 2: The Streets, Step Up Revolution)
How will all of these characters be woven into one coherent plot, you ask? We have no idea. But we also kind of don't care. Because how can this massive gathering of awesome not generate more awesome? (And really, can you describe any of the plots of the last four Step Up movies right now? Didn't think so.)
Shooting for the film begins September 19. Obviously, we'll keep you in the loop!
Guess who's back? Back again? The Academy's back! Tell a friend.
After one day at The Academy, the All Stars have successfully taken the Top 100 down to 62. But their work is just getting started: Now they need to keep narrowing the field to a Top 10, ultimately deciding who each will partner with during the live shows.
We've said it before and we'll say it again: New York City Ballet principal Sara Mearns is some SERIOUS #goals. Her strength and power onstage borders on superhuman. But what's extra magical about Mearns is that she really puts in the fitness and cross-training work outside of the rehearsal studio. And she's overcome her fair share of injuries. Which is why she was the perfect source for Vogue's latest ballet fitness story.
Well, this brings class videos to a whole new level! Choreographer Phil Wright and dancer Ashley Liai have been together eight-plus years, but she was still in total shock when he proposed to her mid-dance at Millennium Dance Complex earlier this week. Why? Well, the whole thing was unbelievably perfect.
In the dance industry, dancers don't always have a say in what they wear on their bodies. This can get tricky if you're asked to wear something that compromises your own personal values. So what should you do if you find yourself in this sticky situation? We sat down for a Q&A with "Dancing with the Stars" alumn Ashly Costa to answer that very question. Here's what she had to say about the options dancers have surrounding questionable costumes.
