You Need to Watch the Trailer for "Step Up: High Water" Season 2

YouTube Red

In case you haven't heard (but you have), "Step Up: High Water"—the brilliantly cast, fantastically dancy YouTube Red series based on the Step Up franchise—is returning for a second season. And while we still don't know exactly when round two will premiere, the show did just gift us an extremely tasty trailer.


Thanks to that trailer, we know at least this much about season 2: It's not going to lack for drama. "Nobody is coming to Madison Square Garden to watch civilians," Sage Odom (aka Ne-Yo), founder of Atlanta's High Water Performing Arts School, barks at his students. "They're coming to look at superheroes."

Coincidentally, "superheroes" is just the word we'd choose to describe the show's cast of dancers, which includes Jade Chynoweth, Petrice Jones, Faizon Love, Marcus Mitchell, Carlito Olivero, Terrence Green, Eric Graise, and Kendra Oyesanya.

Enjoy! And while you're waiting for the second season to premiere, watch season 1 right here.

In today's dance world, versatility is key. It's not enough to be a master of one style—even when they specialize in one area, dancers are frequently asked to fuse multiple genres, or step out of their comfort zone for specific projects. With their wide variety of summer programs, Joffrey Ballet School aims to prepare dancers for the demands of a professional career. We asked five faculty members to share how they do this:

Right now, it seems like the entire world is equal parts obsessed with and thoroughly creeped out by Jordan Peele's Us, the horror film about devilish doppelgängers that's currently rated 94% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

But while the normal human reaction to Us is to hide under the covers for approximately 17 years, "Step Up: High Water" superhero Kendra "K.O." Oyesanya's reaction was to make a totally bananas dance video.
