Return to the Center Stage phenomenon with new passions and partners in the amped-up, high-energy Center Stage: Turn It Up. All Kate Parker has ever wanted to do was perform with the American Ballet Academy. But when she doesn't get in, she learns that it takes more than just natural talent to succeed in the dance world. With a turn in a cutting-edge hip-hop club and the help of a handsome former hockey player-turned-dancer, she may yet manage to make her dreams come true. Peter Gallagher (TV's "The O.C.," Center Stage), Kenny Wormald (TV's "Dancelife"), Ethan Stiefel (Center Stage) and a cast of hot, up-and-coming stars rock to a new beat in this unmissable sensation!

Not every dream comes true, but sometimes the disappointment is necessary to find the determination to reach our goals. Yada, yada, you may think, but it IS true and "Turn it up" starts out with another big audition at the American Ballet Academy, but surprise! The main character doesn't get in!

"Turn it up" is a dance movie and an excellent one at that. I find myself comparing "Turn it up" to "Step up 2 - the streets". "Step up - the streets" was yet another dance movie where there is more emphasis on the music than the dancing and where the dancing is filmed in tiny segments that hide every move. "Turn it up" is the complete opposite. The dancing is in focus in a big way! It's marvelous. The music supports every move and twist splendidly, but doesn't overpower the dancing.

"Turn it up" is a masterpiece of a dance movie. You can't help but get up and dance just a little bit!

Louise

I have to admit that the sad parts of the film aren't amazingly acted- but to be honest it just makes the movie more upbeat.
Unlike other dance movies I've watched, this has FAR more dancing in it, and it is STUNNING!!! Whether is be the ballet or the scenes in the club- or the hot dances between the lead characters, this is definetly a film to watch.

I bought this because it was good value and reminded me a little of step up. Being a big fan of step up I didn't think anything could live up to it, but this film comes pretty close... it's brilliant! I'll admit in a few parts the acting could be better but the lead actress has a contagious smile and the dancing is flawless! A very good film with lots of dancing - superb! This is something you'll watch time and time again :)

"Centre Stage: Turn It up" is a worthy sequel to the first "Center [i.e., Centre] Stage" film (the earlier one subtitled "Life Doesn`t Hold Tryouts"), but not quite of the same level of interest either as drama or as dance. There is more dance of modern pop styles (rap, hip-hop) in this nice sequel than there is ballet, though both are present in the two films, the difference in that regard being one of balance. Ballet (and some glamourous Hollywood/Broadway show dancing, too) is more prominent in the original (i.e., in "Life Doesn`t Hold Tryouts"), with much more dancing of all styles in that film by the entrancing Ethan Stiefel, who, however, does enough dancing in "Turn It up", in classical and pop styles, to justify obtaining the second DVD as well as the first, which had been, however, more of a showcase for him.

The storyline of "Turn It up" is not quite so engrossing as that of the interweaving plot constituents of "Life Doesn`t Hold Tryouts", but the later motion picture does hold the interest between the dance sequences, which are well integrated into the plot. Kenny Wormald, the the adorably boyish and muscular principal male protagonist in "Turn It up", is a fine dancer in his own right; it is his acting that is not quite so up to the level of that of the delightfully insouciant and self-confidently genial Ethan Stiefel, who, fortunately, is in both movies (and in "Life Doesn`t Hold Tryouts" as the main male figure of that film).

My recommendation is to buy both "Centre Stage" films, if one really has a passion for dance in all of its forms, as I do. If star calibre acting and dancing is the shopper's overridingly chief interest, then the first film is the more essential of the two to purchase for his personal collection.

This film is really not too bad, it is quite similar to some of the other dance films that are out and about at the moment, but I think that this is just as good.
the actual plot itself is a little weak as it's been done already but you do get the main idea of what's going on and you are kind of lost in the characters.
I think that if you like other dance films like step up or make it happen, )the classic rise to make it and then not quite get there but learn a new lesson plot) then this one is worth a watch.

I bought this for my daughter's birthday last week. She loves all these types of dvds, i.e. the Step Up films. Apparently this film is awesome!

Ok, so I have to admit I love dance films and watch them all regardless of their quality...which admittedly is sometimes dubious.

Bearing that in mind... I thought this film was really enjoyable, despite the somewhat predictable storyline. The characters are engaging and likeable which really draws you into the film. I liked the style of the dancing and they captured the atmosphere and intimidating nature of the dance world really well. A good, fun way to pass a few hours!

Given that I loved Center Stage, I was expecting much of the same: an uncomplicated plot that serves as the vehicle for some truly amazing dancing, with sufficient charisma and star quality to fill out the movie.

Unfortunately, a pretty face smiling her way through even the angsty parts doesn't quite make up for actual acting ability. And I'm not convinced that the dancing quality is as high as the previous movie; the choreography certainly doesn't strike the same high notes. In addition, while Peter Gallagher's reprise of his character makes sense, Ethan Stiefel's appearance seems a lot more pasted in. He provides the counterpoint of "good teacher" to Peter Gallagher's "mean teacher", and yet again is the (fairly disinterested!) rival love interest for the story.

I liked the premise, that a talented dancer fails her audition to a prestigious dance school, and works her way to success by perseverance and finding a fresh new style... but that isn't really an accurate summary of the plot. The idea that you can be a talented dancer with only a couple of years of learning ballet on your own from videos is really kinda horrifying! A promising dancer, maybe, but certainly not ready for a career. And the idea that the school directors were mean for refusing her on the basis that she wasn't as good as the other applicants is really quite crazy. This is reflected in the fact that in order to make her struggles sympathetic, Kate has to be pitted against the foes of poverty, a stalkery psycho-dancer with an influential daddy and entitlement issues who wants Kate's boyfriend as more than a professional partner, and the terror of disappointing her sister who believes she passed the all-important audition.
