In a sequel that features the original’s Channing Tatum only in cameo, a Baltimore teen (Briana Evigan, very winning) enrolls at an arts academy, leaving her street-dancing pals behind.

Never mind that the movie heedlessly asks you to cheer against the less white, less privileged street kids. (Okay, mind a little.) B-
