Strap up your dancing shoes because the Step Up franchise is finally getting its own series. Initially planned for late 2017, Step Up: High Water will be touching down on streaming platform YouTube Red in January with ten episodes. 

Based around a similar concept to the original movies, the series will follow the journey of Sage Odom (played by Ne-Yo, naturally), the founder of an Atlanta performing-arts school, and Janelle (Lauryn McClain), a young dancer trying to break the hip-hop scene.

Of course there will also be some complicated love stories and sweet moves along the way. 

Glee graduate Naya Rivera will also be on board for the role of Collette, a dancer-turned-administrator with her fair share of secrets – including an old affair with Neyo's character. While Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan Tatum won't be starring in the show, they will be on hand as executive producers, along with the original movies' producers.

The series will also be using music from Grammy Award-winning Jason "Poo Bear" Boyd and Jingle Punks CEO Jared Gutstadt. So warm and and practice your moves for Step Up: High Water's arrival on YouTube Red on January 31
