* ChoreographyPorn: This trope is pretty much the reason the franchise exists, to the point where if you took out all the dancing it would be only half its actual length.



* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Invoked in ''All In''. [[spoiler:Even the producers, who were about to crown Grim Knight the victors, couldn't deny that [=LMNtrix=] put in the better performance during the finals.]]

''Step Up: All In'' (2014) continues Sean's story as he and the Mob struggle to get by as working dancers in L.A., ultimately resulting in everyone but Sean returning to Miami. However, when Sean hears about a dance contest on VH1 for a three-year contract to perform at a hotel in Las Vegas, he enlists Moose to help him put together a new crew consisting entirely of characters from the previous films. This includes Andie, protagonist of ''The Streets'', who had been forced to quit dancing after a knee injury and is now ready to get back in the game, although her fears of getting injured again form her subplot for the film. Naturally, tensions arise when Sean learns that the Mob has joined the competition, although the real problem is the Grim Warriors, a crew that neither group likes. This film returns to the dance battle structure of ''The Streets'' and ''3D'' after the flash-mobs of ''Revolution'', and is the first film in the series to feature both recurring male and female leads.

* GondorCallsForAid: the ending of ''Revolution''.



* GondorCallsForAid: the ending of ''Revolution''.

to:

* GondorCallsForAid: InformedPoverty: Blatant in ''Revolution''. All the ending main characters but Emily are blue-collar workers, but they throw huge and complex flash-mob performances that would need at least 5-figures budgets. Several times on a few weeks.
** ''Step Up 3'' is about saving the lead character home, where several runaway dancers live for free. The place is fully equipped with training rooms, a functional boombox wall, and a whole display
of ''Revolution''.high-brand sneakers, complete with lighting to show them off. That on the first floor. The ground floor is a free-entrance club that is shown as succesful, but it doesn't help to pay the bills. The only one who seems to be working to afford it all is the lead character... as a waiter. ''After'' their place seems to be definitely lost. And he promptly quits when Moose calls him back.

'''''Step Up''''' is a film franchise. Based around dancing, mostly hip hop / breakdancing, each film follows the story of a dancer who uses their talent as a form of expression and their subsequent romance with a fellow dancer, generally from a different class background. The films are a bit of a ClicheStorm, following a pretty consistent formula particularly when it comes to the love story aspects, but the series' clear focus is on the spectacular dance numbers that grow more and more elaborate with each new installment.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: in All In, the group learns that [[spoiler:the contest is blatantly rigged. In response, they purposefully create a ClicheStorm winning performance that the company executives couldn't have lose without revealing the scheme]]

''Step Up 2: The Streets'' (2008) follows Andie, a tomboy from Tyler's neighborhood with her own delinquent streak who is forced to choose between attending MSA and being shipped off to Texas to live with her aunt. However, her new life at the school affects her relationship with her friends from her neighborhood, who as a dance crew are the champions of a local hip-hop dance competition known as "The Streets." After most of her old friends reject her, Andie teams up with her new friend Moose and MSA's local BigManOnCampus, Chase, to put together a new crew to compete in The Streets. This film marked the series' turn towards hip-hop dancing as a primary focus rather than the balance of hip-hop and contemporary in the previous installment and introduced EnsembleDarkhorse Moose, who has featured in every film since. It is also the only film in the series to have the female lead as the primary protagonist.

''Step Up'' (2006) follows teen delinquent Tyler (ChanningTatum in his breakout role), a talented hip-hop dancer who ends up forced to do community service at the fictional Maryland School of the Arts after he is caught vandalizing school property. However, his life changes when one of the students, UptownGirl Nora, enlists him to be her partner for her senior performance after her regular partner is injured. This first installment established the series' long-running theme of inter-class conflict, particularly in relation to the divide between hip-hop (considered "lower class") and more "traditional" dance forms like ballet or contemporary (taught at the "upper class" private arts school). It's also the darkest installment of the films, being the only one where a character dies during the course of the story.
