Stomp The Yard

Urban dance movie, from the director that brought you I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer. After the death of his younger brother, a teenage street dancer from Los Angeles is able to bypass juvenile hall by enrolling in Truth University in Atlanta, Georgia. But his efforts to get an education are sidelined when he is courted by the top two campus fraternities, both of which want and need his fierce street-style dance moves to win the highly coveted national step show competition.
