Product Description

DJ (Columbus Short), an amazing underground street dancer, hasn't been in college for a day before he's entranced by a lovely co-ed, April (Meagan Good).Working as a gardener to pay the bills, DJ doesn't fit in with the wealthier students around campus, but one thing does catch his attention -- the rival fraternity competitions known as "stepping." With April's help, DJ learns about the legacy and heritage behind the fraternities and decides to join up. Now part of an official step group, DJ must balance rehearsals, work, and school, while at the same time winning the heart of the girl of his dreams. With the National Step Championship drawing closer, DJ must learn to stop dancing as an individual, and to start stepping as part of a team.

At its core, Stomp the Yard is a romantic drama disguised as a dance film. Or is it the other way around? DJ (Columbus Short) is a troubled teen from Los Angeles who gets a chance for a better life when he is admitted into Atlanta's privileged Truth University. Just when he thought he had escaped a life of gangs, DJ finds himself in the middle of a "war" between two upper-crust fraternities where stepping (a popular dance form) is their weapon of choice. When DJ realizes the coed he falls for is the girlfriend of the school's champion stepper, he joins the rival fraternity to try to show her--and himself--that he's as good as anyone else there. Stomp the Yard is not an original film. Add some drums and you've got Drumline. Change some of the characters around and you've got Save the Last Dance. What sets the movie apart is the stepping. The precision involved at this level is impressively complicated and Short--a dancer and choreographer--is beautifully expressive both as an actor and a dancer. Sure the plot is predictable and hokey at times. But Short and Meagan Good (as his crush April) have wonderful chemistry together, and the supporting cast--including Harry J. Lennix as DJ's no-nonsense uncle--are delightful to watch. --Jae-Ha Kim

Say what you want about the storyline, the acting, whatever... you know you cheered for the under dog. To manage making a black movie with no sex, moderate violence, promoting higher education, unity and brotherhood, come on, you got to love it, especially in these days and times.

It's not an award-winning film (that I know of), but it's a lot of fun.

STOMP THE YARD (Sylvan White, 2007) is the story of a street dancer from LA (Columbus Short) who gets sent to a fictional Historically Black University after his equally talented brother gets killed while competing, where he gets drafted into the local fraternity rivalry because of his impressive dancing ability. He doesn't think much of frat life at first, until a gorgeous coed (Meagan Good) opens his eyes and heart to it, inspiring him to join the perpetual underdog Theta Nu Theta in their quest to defeat their seven time champion step show rival Mu Gamma Xis. Thought DJ (Short) has talent, old rival forces behind the scenes, long predating his arrival at school conspire to keep him and the Thetas from ever achieving victory. Can DJ overcome these obstacles by successfully "stomping the yard (dancing)?" That's the film.

And it's admittedly a very predictable one, with a story whose twists and turns and outcome you can pretty much see coming a mile away. But as I always say with movies like this, it's not about the story, but about the execution, and STOMP THE YARD has that in spades. The dancing is spectacular, the directing is reasonably good, and the cast is really talented. If you like this sort of thing, of if you enjoy dancing and dance movies in general, you will definitely get what you pay for. STOMP THE YARD is fun, the music is great, and it has a noble heart to it that deserves mention, making it a cut above other movies in this genre. Check it out!

It's a terrible experience when someone close to you passes and it's even rougher when it's your baby brother. After dancing in a battle and winning a hat full of money Dj "Columbus Short", his brother "Chris Brown" and his team beat the wrong team this time. While walking home in a dark alley the other team jumped them to get their money back but bad turns to worst and DJ's brother is shot and killed. DJ is sent to live with his Uncle and aunt in Atlanta and is expected to go to college. When he arrives on campus he sees some things he's never seen before like fraternities and stepping and it's all downhill from there. During this film DJ learns things that boys need to learn to become men especially love and even gets to do what he loves most while he's there. He ends up becoming a major key to one frat in dieing need of something fresh.

The first time I saw the preview for "Stomp the Yard" I automatically thought, "Wow, the stepping version of Drumline" but at the same time I felt it would be pretty good. Though this movie does resemble Drumline the story differs a bit. The first being "Darrin Henson" (Soul Food the series) who is a good actor but a dancer and choreographer first and I would say a better choreographer than actor since he probably makes more money off of it. Of course the others being "Chris Brown" and "Columbus Short", most of the cast are dancers acting unlike "Drumline" where Nick Cannon was an actor who had to learn how to play the drums. Even the two frats remind you of "Drumline" one frat has an old school style and hasn't won in 7 years and the other has a grimey aggressive new shchool that never loses.

This is a good movie.. a bit angry and hostile but the story was good and the predictable ending was still good. Dancing was good but I didn't like the way it was filmed. Sometimes I wish the camera would just stay still so we could see the whole routine. Best part for us was the "making of the film" with the director talking through the scenes at the end. Very interesting and very cool to know how it all went down.. it actually made me like the film better.

If your looking for earth shattering acting, deep character development and a moving plot -erk- then what the heck are looking at dance movies for?!?! Sure this movies has been done before - isn't this a remix/make of You've Been Served with the newest crop of R&B/dancer hot-boys? Now if want ear-shattering! Then this IS the movie for you! I had a ball trying to learn some of the rump-shaking moves after. And I definately had to add some new workout songs from the soundtrack to my IPod - Let's Go by Trick Daddy is hot!

I write this review as a GDI (BGLO speak for well...somebody who isn't a member of a Black Greek Letter Org). I have however aspired to join one after attending my 1st Howard U. parade 12yrs ago. Of course, over the yrs I grew to learn that BGLOs are about much more than stepping, having attended many events & probates hosted by the different orgs. but stepping will always be a part of the history, tradition & culture of Black Greek Life. That being said, I was ecstatic about this movie & made sure that I was one of the 1st in line for a ticket on opening night. I know that Hollywood is all about what's going to entertain and box office statistics but it didn't take long before I realized that it wasn't going to be a amazing portrayal of Black Fraternities and Sororities...not at all. First off, I have never in my life seen two orgs present new members at the same time. Maybe on the same day, at different times that may overlap but that's it. Secondly, it's no secret that some chapters in all 9 orgs still haze but at least they could've offset the negative with a positive like hmmmm I don't know...the vast amount of community involvement and their collective purposes/what they stand for. They did at least pay respect to some of their more notable members such as Maya Angelou and Dr, Martin Luther King Jr. Another thing I just have to mention is that I felt like I was watching "You Got Served" or one of the "Step Up" movies. While there's no doubt Columbus Short is a good dancer and choreographer, there was just TOO much dancing!! Considering that the writers and producers are men of Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc, I was surprised that they didn't push for a more accurate portrayal. All in all, if you want a movie to get you hype about dancing and [somewhat] the art of Stepping, here you go. But if you're using the movie itself to decide whether or not to pursue membership, do some REAL research or you're probably not going to get very far.
