The dancetastic YouTube series "Step Up: High Water" returns for its second season on March 20th (yes, we have a premiere date!). And this time around, the fabulous cast will be tackling choreography by the man, the myth, the "So You Think You Can Dance" legend, Travis Wall.

The "Step Up" team just released a video going behind the scenes on the number TWall created for the series, a hip-hop–inflected spectacular that pushed the contemporary phenom well outside of his comfort zone. Not that he wasn't true to himself: Looks like there's also plenty of the powerful dance storytelling that's become his signature.

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.

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.

This is not a drill: The 2006 classic Step Up—the dancetastic movie that inspired a series and, perhaps more importantly, marked the beginning of Channing and Jenna Dewan Tatum's magical relationship—is returning to movie theaters for one night only. I repeat: THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
