Top Step Up Moments

Today is one of those days when I'm especially in love with my job: It got me tickets to a screening of Step Up Revolution tonight. YAY!

Tune in tomorrow for a few choice sneak-peeky tidbits about the latest Step Up amazingness. But in preparation for tonight, I thought I'd round up some highlights from the first three Step Up films. Memories!

1. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan's club scene from Step Up. Reality factor? Not so high. (When was the last time you went out dancing and everyone on the floor was doing the same choreographed number?) But the chemistry between the future husband-and-wife duo in this scene is off the charts, and Mr. Tatum's moves are darn cute.

2. The final dance scene from Step Up 2: The Streets. Three words: Just. Add. Water.

3. The first battle (Red Hook) from Step Up 3D. Not that the first two movies weren't awesome, but they really, really stepped up (har!) the level of dancing—and the caliber of dancers involved—in the third installment. Exhibit A:

4. The World Jam finals from Step Up 3D...also known as Exhibit B. The light-up suits—and baby breakdancers!—get me every time. (Sorry about the poor quality.)

But how can you dance safely and productively in the great outdoors? We got pro tips from Mike Tyus of Jacob Jonas The Company and Xin Ying of Martha Graham Dance Company, both of whom were dancing outside long before COVID-19 hit.
