He will challenge their traditions. Their traditions will change his life.

After the death of his younger brother, a troubled 19-year-old street dancer from Los Angeles is able to bypass juvenile hall by enrolling in the historically black Truth University in Atlanta, Georgia. But his efforts to get an education and woo the girl he likes are sidelined when he is courted by the top two campus fraternities, both of which want and need his fierce street-style dance moves to win the highly coveted national step show competition.

Theatrical report

Stomping - whether it knows this or not - owes a lot to New Zealand's kapa haka, the war dance performed by Kiwi sporting teams: stamping feet, slapping hands, poking tongues, glaring eyes, violent moves and warrior cries - all intended to intimidate the enemy into submission before battle. (See also Whale rider.)

Stomp the yard owes a lot to Hollywood's Bad-boy-makes-good™ dance movie genre. In fact, apart from the stepping itself, this flick owes everything to Hollywood's Bad-boy-makes-good™ dance movie genre. Fortunately, there are some hotties.

The dance, romance, university movie Stomp the yard (Steppin') is directed by Sylvain White and stars Laz Alonso, Angela Bassett, Chris Brown.
