Two feature films SAVE THE LAST DANCE 1 & 2. Following the death of her mother Sara Johnson (Julia Stiles) is forced to move from her quiet Midwestern town to her fathers apartment on the south side of Chicago. There she finds life in the ghetto very different to the comfortable one she left behind. When she meets fellow student Derek (Sean Patrick Thomas) their friendship and mutual interest in dancing inexorably lead to a passionate romance that raises the sadly typical bigoted resistance from Saras white father and Dereks black friends. In the straight-to-video sequel Izabella Miko steps into Julia Stiles pointe shoes as aspiring ballerina Sara Johnson who leaves her Chicago ghetto to study dance at the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City under the tutelage of dance instructor Monique Delacroix (Jacqueline Bisset). As the story unfolds Sara tangles with a jealous rival and falls for a young professor ensuring that the sequel is awash with the same brand of passion and drama that made its parent film such a hit.
