Plot Synopsis

Traci Young-Byron, a former Miami Heat dancer, is the owner of the elite dance company, the Young Contemporary Dance Theatre (YCDT), which viewers first saw on the Lifetime series BRING IT!. In this series, the YCDT dancers push themselves to the limit to perform at high-profile events. Traci's tough, no-nonsense attitude prepares her dancers, who vary in age, for the myriad dance genres they face, including ballet, modern, contemporary, jazz, West African and hip-hop. For this troupe, the biggest competition isn't other teams; it's each other, as they must dance their hearts out to earn a coveted spot in a high-stakes performance each week.
On Friday, November 13, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, Lifetime premiered the season finale of STEP IT UP. In the season ender, "It All Comes Down to This," Rep and company must perform a very personal liturgical dance; Traci and the alumni judges test the dancers with a freestyle routine.
