Still shot from the movie: Stomp the Yard.

Stomp the Yard

In this dance-by-number plot, an African American youth named DJ (Columbus Short) leaves his troubled life in LA behind after he is given the opportunity to attend an Atlanta university. As expected, new problems arise on campus when two rival fraternities learn of his street-style dance moves, which they both desperately want in order to win a national step show competition.

A young delinquent is given the opportunity to improve his dance steps when he is sentenced to do community service in the film Step Up. An aspiring ballerina uses her hip-hop skills to keep kids off the rough city streets when she offers a dance class in the movie Honey. Drumline is yet another film in which a young man (this time from Harlem) is provided a chance to turn his life around in Georgia.
