Entertainment Weekly wrote recently that Centerstage is the greatest dance movie of all time. I disagree. Strongly.
  1. That end sequence tho
    This could be the beginning and end of the list as far as I'm concerned. I wish I could add a GIF. HE BREATHES HER. IT'S INSANE! The dancing in this finale is so damn good. And it takes place outside in that crazy-ass firehose movie rain because THE STREETS.
  2. The leads have chemistry!
    Like, they like each for real. It's palpable. When they won Best Kiss at the MTV Movie awards, I had to cross my legs in other direction.
  3. Channing Tatum
    Does a double flip off a trampoline and LEAVES HIS SHIRT hanging from a pole in the FIRST 10 MINUTES of this movie.
  4. Shake Your Pom Pom
    We hadn't heard from Missy in far too long when she added this hot track to the soundtrack. The accompanying dance montage was fun as hell too.
  5. A b-girl as a lead!
    I'm so sick of watching ballerinas find their inner "street" in dance movies. It was so refreshing to watch a girl who can breakdance. That's her doing a headspin while everyone else just points like "that's what's up".
  6. Jabbawokeez
    Are somehow not even the best dancers in this movie
  7. Moose
    The whole movie you're like "Well, he's a fun sidekick." And then he goes FULL BLOWN MICHAEL JACKSON in the finale. Again, dat finale.
  8. Christopher Scott
    Lookin young as hell and dumb as hell, but still crushing it as a dancer. He would go on to choreograph some siiiiiick dances for So You Think You Can Dance.
