| Columbus Short, Meagan Good and Darrin Henson star in the new stomp rhythmic step dance movie called "Stomp the Yard" that delivers with a pretty good story. You will never see stomping like this as Iím sure it took months of training to pull off all these incredible dance scenes.
The story begins with DJ who is played by Columbus Short, a 19 yr old dancer from LA who witnessed his brother die in a quarrel they had with a rival dancer. DJ is able to avoid juvenile hall by enrolling at a University in Atlanta where he ends up catching the eye of fraternities who need his unbelievable dance moves to win a major national step show competition. The storyline heats up as fraternities rival for the championship where at the same time DJ is trying to balance an education, love life and convection for his brother. If you are big into stomp dancing you are going to love this action packed drama with many musical scenes.
