Previously no details about choreographers or actor and dancer appearances for the sequel had been announced, with only George Sampson tweeting hints as to who is in Streetdance 2.

It appears the film, a sequel to the 2010 UK dance movie Streetdance 3D produced by Vertigo Films, will not be including choreography from Kenrick Sandy or Kate Prince, who choreographed dance sequences in the original film with ballet choreographer Will Tuckett.

While production on Streetdance 2 is underway, no release date has been set.
