The biggest problem with Step It Up and Dance is that its tried-and-true (um, make that tired-and-true) formula is all too familiar -- and it's hard to shake the feeling that we've seen all this dance drama before. Still, the choreography is usually compelling ... although every now and then, you wonder what the heck they were thinking. The other good news is that at least half of the 12 contestants are truly talented and dynamic, which makes them a lot of fun to watch. In short, this is solid viewing for die-hard dance fans and a decent choice for the rest of us -- at least if there's nothing better on.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
