You Guys, the Step Up 5 Cast Is Ridiculous

Whoa. WHOA.

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.

Memories!

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)

The Mob:

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!

5 of the Danciest TV Shows Streaming Right Now (and Where to Stream Them)

We're about two months into #SocialDisDancing, and let's be real—while we all wish we were spending every spare minute stretching, cross-training, or taking online classes, sometimes we just need to Netflix and chill.

We figure, if you're going to be watching TV anyways, why not make it dancy TV? After all, watching pros dance on-screen is basically dance class homework...or at least we'll say it is. Here are five of the danciest TV shows for you to watch—and where to find them.

The Making of "Center Stage," as Remembered by Its Dance Stars

Whether you first watched it in a theater two decades ago or on Netflix last week, odds are you feel a deep connection to Center Stage. The cult classic, which premiered May 12, 2000, is arguably the greatest dance film ever made. (Dance obsessives might take issue with the "cult" before "classic," not to mention the "dance" before "film.") Jody Sawyer's ballet journey—which combines oh-wow-I've-had-those-blisters realism with wait-does-she-have-magic-color-changing-pointe-shoes fantasy—stands the test of time, early-aughts fashion be darned. We've memorized its highly quotable lines, laughed with (and, gently, at) its heroes, and been inspired by its sincere love of dance and dancers.

To celebrate Center Stage's 20th anniversary, we asked five of its dance stars to talk through their memories of the filming process. Here are their stories of on-set bonding, post-puke kissing scenes, and life imitating art imitating life.
