That aside, I felt that the producers could have developed the supporting characters more, especially the crew members who joined the main characters during the middle of the show. The story actually provided a lot of dysfunctional yet loveabale side characters which takes us away from our usual perception of dancers.
I mean think about it. If I asked you to describe the physical appearance of a dancer, you'd probably come up with the usual good looking, well toned body with a hip hop/cool personality kind of character. Now theres nothing wrong about that, but the media keeps associating the good lookers to talent that we begin to stereotype those who aren't good looking as people with no talent. Just look at all the talent shows like American Idol or dance movies like the first Step Up or Honey.
The people in it are all primed and flawless with nice bodies and that kind of Lucas Scott personality, and that is the illusion the media has created. Step Up 2 reminds us that talent is more than skin deep by adding in a supporting cast from the bottom rungs of the social ladder. There were geeks, hippies and Asians..but damn they got moves and not a "HOLLY SHIT THIS IS SO COOL" moment goes by when they dance and they totally outshone the leads.
I particularly liked this guy named Adam G. Sevani who played this super geek, Moose sickeningly well. And my God, yes! He dance very chun..And this was what I really liked about Step Up 2, because it also had a lesson beneath all the dance repertoires.
