i wish i could audition too.. but i live too far.. hehe.... cant wait for Step up 2 ( even though channing is not the lead )

The lead girl is Briana Evigan and she doesn't even breakdance!!!! I thought this movie was supposed to be about a b-girl not a poser.

It figures they never actually try to make these things real. You can't teach someone how to breakdance in 3 months. Let alone how to really be a b-girl. haha ...ready for another poser dance movie. Channing and Jenna would have at least been a little more real than this.

Lorenzo said...

REALLY? WOW SO MUCH FOR STEP UP ....HOW ABOUT THEY JUST NAME THE MOVIE STEP DOWN...LOL

It is definitley going to be a step down if they have a girl who can't dance. My friend lives in LA and said that girl Briana isn't even a good hip-hop dancer ha ha let alone a b-girl I think it is going to be pretty funny when they try to make her look good at it...hahahhaha STEP DOWN 2: THE STREETS...LOL

Yeah I heard that girl can't dance either. They should have had Jenna play the lead or at least a real bgirl that knows how to actually get down.

HAHAH THAT IS SO FUNNY...

STEP DOWN 2: THE STREETS

I auditioned for the movie and saw Briana dance. I made it to the dance finals. I think she is amazing. She studied with Shane Sparks since she was 11. You are in for a surprise. it's a shame people like you have to be so negative. I am sure the producers and choreographer wouldn't have hired a bad dancer. Save your negative crap until you see her and the movie. From a dancer that wished she had gotten the part.

Thank you so much for letting us know about Briana's abilities. I can't wait to see this movie, because I love Shane Sparks! His hip hop routines are awesome on 'So You Think You can Dance'.
