Story

After being defeated by the Invincibles Street Dance crew, Ash (Falk Hentschel) decides to quit dancing. But he is approached by Eddie (George Sampson) to form a new crew and try another dance challenge. Ash takes some persuading but eventually agrees to put together a crew from the best street dancers in Europe. He feels he needs to do something completely different to win the challenge. When he sees Eva (Sofia Boutella) performing a very sexy salsa dance, he realises this is the idea (and the girl) he’s been looking for. His vision is a fusion of Latin and street dance, but his crew isn’t so sure.

Ideas to discuss with your children

Streetdance 2 3D is a dance movie with some great Latin and street dance moves that dance fans will enjoy. The appeal of the movie is fairly limited, however. There is an inevitable touch of romance, but the storyline is thin. Parents of younger children might be worried about their children watching scenes of young women doing provocative, sexy dancing.

The main message from this movie is that you need to overcome fears and failure to get what you want.

Values in this movie that you could reinforce with your children include never giving up, and acknowledging and fixing your mistakes.
