Mary Murphy said Sonya brought another side of Paul and that there was a lot of intensity in his movement and that he was gritty. Paul danced alongside the rest of the top remaining 12 dancers in a Bollywood routine choreographed by Nakul Dev Mahajan in the opening routine.Paul and partner Makenzie danced their last dance together in a contemporary routine choreographed by Mandy Moore, to an acoustic version of Lady Gaga's "Edge of Glory". Nigel Lythgoe loved the routine and praised them both for their extensions. Mary Murphy said Paul looked amazing and praised him for the passion he always sends towards his partner.The only thing she loves is dancing with her street crew, the 410, led by Tuck.The 410 are the most notorious of the street crews in Baltimore and are wanted by the police for their acts of vandalism and public mischief.
Andie's neighborhood friend, Tyler Gage, convinces Andie to audition for entry into the Maryland School of the Arts (MSA), an institution which ended up turning his life around for the better.Determined to prove her skills, she assembles an eclectic crew of classmates that includes Chase, the schools best dancer, to compete against the 410 in the premier underground dance battle in Baltimore, The Streets. There are double the dancing sequences and double the greatness! The charming two leads and the lovable characters add as the cherry on top. All in all, this is about a notch or two better than the original, but plotwise, it's the same. I quite enjoyed Step Up, although the plot was clichéd and predictable, but the dance moves were good. Anyone crazy enough to see this movie for the plot should not see this film. Kenny Ortega said Paul has a fire burning in his soul and that his love for dance is apparent in every single move that he makes.Alongside Aaron Turner, Alan Bersten, Nico Greetham and Fik-Shun Stegall, Paul danced a hip hop piece choreographed by Tabitha and Napoleon D'umo.
