As the central character in this musical melodrama about step dancing in black fraternities, Short displays an uncanny dramatic sensibility to go with the eye-catching athleticism of his dance moves.

The results are corny beyond measure. Yet there's something sweet about them, in part because there's something sweet about hearing the line Congratulations! Why didn't you tell me you pledged? outside the realm of comedy.

Stomp the Yard hasn't an original bone in its fierce, sweaty body, but explosive choreography, high-energy moves and a generous helping of hot, frequently shirtless guys offer plenty of entertainment.
