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!

How Paloma Garcia-Lee Manifested Her Dream Role, in Steven Spielberg’s "West Side Story"

On a rainy day in November 2018, Paloma Garcia-Lee got a call from her agent that brought her to her knees outside her New York City apartment: She was going to play Graziella in Steven Spielberg's West Side Story.

The call came after a lengthy audition process with Spielberg in the room, and the role, originated by Wilma Curley on Broadway in 1957 and later portrayed by Gina Trikonis in the 1961 film, was her biggest dream. In fact, it's something Garcia-Lee says she manifested from the day plans for the movie were announced in January 2018. "I wrote in my journal: 'I am playing Graziella in Steven Spielberg's West Side Story.'"

Am I Less Committed to Dance Because I Have Other Passions? (Spoiler Alert: NO!)

Let's face it—dance is HARD, and in order to achieve your goals, you need to be committed to your training. "Still, there's a fine line between being committed and being consumed." Dancers can, and should, have interests outside of the studio.

Not convinced? We talked with dance psychologist Dr. Lucie Clements and two multifaceted dancers, Kristen Harlow (a musical theater dancer pursuing a career in NYC and Kentucky) and Kallie Takahashi (a dancer in her final year at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts), and got the inside scoop on how having hobbies outside of dance can inform your artistry, expand your range and help prevent burnout.

But since you’re never fully dressed without a Dance Spirit exclusive, we caught up with Brittany Conigatti, one of the young orphans and adult ensemble members in the show, to learn what it was like putting together a large-scale live production for the small screen.
