Step Up Revolution is the latest dance film in the now-iconic Step Up franchise, which we can all thank for giving us the glory that is Channing Tatum’s taut backside. The new movie is a romance (yay) set in Miami (caliente!), with Kathryn McCormick as an aspiring dancer who falls in love with a sexy dance mob leader, played by Ryan Guzman. To celebrate, the stars of the film are leading the internet in a virtual flash mob, and they need you to dance your little hearts out on video for them. Film and tweet your moves using the hashtag #stepupmob and you may be featured in the new music video for Timbaland‘s “Hands In The Air.” Sounds fun to us! Watch the video above to learn the steps and read below the jump for more deets.
From the official press release:
Step Up Revolution cast members Ryan Guzman, Kathryn McCormick, Misha Gabriel and choreographer Jamal Sims have demonstrated four dances for participants to choose from for the virtual flash mob.
After selecting one of the four dances, fans will need to record themselves performing the dance, upload their video to an online video platform (e.g., YouTube), and tweet the video link with the hashtag #StepUpMob. Each video submitted with that specific hashtag will be collected for the opportunity to be featured in the final music video.
