Buskirk-Chumley summer film series continues with ‘Step Up’

The 2006 dance movie “Step Up” will be presented at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater on Friday as part of the BCT’s “Dance Moves & Movies” summer film series. Tickets cost $5 for the event. Doors for the event open at 6:30 p.m., and the event begins at 7 p.m. 

For each screening during the series, the BCT invites local dance organizations and instructors to teach a lesson to attendees about the dance styles they will see in the movie.

Before the movie screening, the 40vers Hip Hop Group will present a brief hip-hop demo and dance lesson.

“Step Up” won a 2007 Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie: Dance, and was nominated for Choice Movie: Drama and Choice Movie Actor: Drama.

The theater's series began with a presentation of the Oscar-award winning film “Happy Feet” on June 22. Young moviegoers learned the shuffles and steps to the movie’s music from Mary Sue Hosey, tap dance instructor from the Dance Center in Bloomington.

On June 29, the BCT presented “Dirty Dancing” with a mambo demonstration by Arthur Murray Dance Studio and a Cuban Salsa dance lesson by Ritmos Latinos instructors.

Concluding the series will be a presentation of “Top Hat” on Aug. 3, with a foxtrot lesson by Arthur Murray.
