Movie Info

As Sarah Johnson (Izabella Miko)'s ultimate dream of attending Julliard and becoming a professional ballerina begin to take roots in reality, her interest in the art of hip-hop dance threatens to sideline her education in this sequel to the popular 2001 dance drama. Sarah Johnson may be at Julliard, but her struggle to make a name for herself in the ultra-competitive world of dance is only beginning. Though her stern instructor and idol Monique Delacroix (Jacqueline Bisset) has generously taken young Isabelle under her wing, a guest lecturer named Miles (Columbus Short) causes the aspiring young dancer to question her priorities. Soon torn between the raw honesty of hip-hop dance and the respectable world of ballet, Sarah realizes that only she take hold of her fate and face the future with the confidence to succeed no matter which path she chooses.more

The dance sequences will undoubtedly shake the socks right off of ya! They're terrific, possibly even more so than those in the first film.

Very good dance choreography between hip-hop and ballerina. Izabella Miko does fantastic in her own dance choreography.

This sequel is orrible. I mean they break up Sara and Dereck. The reasone Save the Last Dance was so popular is because of those two and there love for eachother. I seriously wanted to kill whoever wrote this script.

Sara and Kenny are an icon couple. He pulled her out of her darkest days and they break up just because of a little distance? and yet they overcame racial differences, tragic pasts and gang bangers.

They also got rid of Julia Stiles. WTF.

I hated it. Simple as that.
