Storm The Yard

Title: Storm The Yard
Genre: Drama
Director: Sylvain White
Cast: Columbus Short, Meagan Good, Ne-Yo (Shaffer Smith), Darrin Henson, Brian White, Laz Alonso, Valarie Pettiford, Harry Lennix, Chris Brown
RunTime: 1 hr 55 mins

When DJ (Columbus Short), a troubled youth from Los Angeles, moves to Atlanta to attend Truth University, he discovers "stepping," the age-old style of dance traditionally done in African-American Fraternities, where teams demonstrate complex moves and create rhythmic
sounds by using their bodies. DJ's raw talent and hip-hop inspired moves quickly place him at the center of a fierce rivalry between two fraternities, the winner of which will be determined in front of a sold-out arena at the annual stepping championships. But before he can help his teammates, he must battle his own demons and learn the true meaning of brotherhood.

Q : What's stepping?
A : A form of dance that combines elements of military drill with contemporary jazz and hip hop moves, the dancers clap and slap on various parts of their body to produce a dance rhythm.

Check out here for further movie reviews.

I'm actually a diehard fans of musical / dance / singing related films like Coyote Ugly, Save The Last Dance, Honey, You Got Served, Take The Lead, Step Up, Music & Lyrics... but personally, I know nothing about dancing moves or steps, a dance noobie you can say, LoL! But still, I'm so into it and I feel really bad deep inside my heart cause I never had the chance to learn any of them. What a pity! Each time I step into the cinema to watch this kinda film, I'll become so excited as I'm part of them and in a highly emotional state of mind.
