Will Tyler, for the first time in his life, step up and fight for want he wants?

My Review:

I love dance movies, and this was pretty much the same as my favorite, Save the Last Dance. It may be the same from the story, but it's not the same music, so I really enjoyed watching it, but I think it's really only something for fans of this kind of stuff, otherwise it's pretty ordinary and predictable. I still loved it. ^^
