Electric Boogaloo (Breakdance 2) (1984)

This rapidly-released sequel to Breakdance (1984) finds the same lead characters using their dance talents once more to save their run-down community centre.

Finding professional work hard to come by, top breakdancers TKO Crew turn to teaching dance at a local community centre.

When they discover greedy land developers are planning to demolish the site, they take to the streets to save the building.

Just as Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney did in the 1930s, Adolfo “Shabba-Doo” Quinones and Michael “Boogaloo Shrimp” Chambers put on a show to raise cash and halt the developers who want to turn the centre into a shopping mall.

A standard-issue follow-up with stereotypical humour undercutting its happy-go-lucky breeziness.
