I always love musical movies, but what I never realized before is that there is one other category that I may love it as well as musical movies, it is dance movies! “StreetDance” is a perfect example of today’s dance movie. The story just seems to be another repetition from other similar movies. It’s all about rebellion against establishment of formal institutions and it’s also about how to express yourself. It’s the whole elements that have been occurring since “Footloose” (1984) to the modern breathtaking flick like “Step Up 2: The Streets” (2008), in which I think that it is still the best presentation of our time. The modern dance movie is also always about traditional art-school dancer Vs. freestyle street dancer, where on thiz movie is street dancers vs. ballet dancers. It is about Carly (Nichola Burley) and her dance crew which later named Breaking Point. They have to mix together with several ballet dancers from The Royal Dance School in exchange for rehearsal place. Nichola Burley can deliver her character smooth enough to take us into energizing mood with her unique British accent and some enthralling dancing moves as well. Thiz movie really put Burley into the spotlight since last time I saw her in psychological thriller “Donkey Punch” in 2008. Other Cast members are Charlotte Rampling, Richard Winsor and real life professional dancer like George Sampson. Thiz movie is also featuring “Britain’s Got Talent” stars, Diversity and Flawless. It is very exciting to observe how the recent street dance style has evolved outside of dance studios. The movie is surprisingly directed by first-time Directors, Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini. It is delightful and enjoyable movie. It’s filled with fascinating choreography and heart-throbbing hip hop music. The pop group N-Dubz said, “We Dance On.”
