need help looking for hip hop songs to fit our theme

Ok, so I just found out that this year our recital theme is "Thats Entertainment" Broadway, Movies & TV.

I have four hip hop classes:
Ages 6-9 (beginner)
Ages 7-12 (beginner/intermediate)
Ages 10-13 (intermediate)
Ages 12-15 (advanced)

For recital the first two classes will dance together and the second two clases will dance together. So there will be two dances. Each dance is like a mini production, so multiple songs can be used.

Any ideas would be great, as I am feeling stuck. I thought about doing Step Up (since it is a movie), however we have done so much to that this year in our combos across the floor, that I think the kids will get bored.

The songs dont necessarily have to be from an actual movie/tv show/broadway, it can be something that could describe it.

Any help would be great, as I have to start teaching their dances in two weeks. Thanks!

Not sure which class(es) you're talking about, but for the older ones you could do like a mixture of songs.
Maybe you could use different songs from step up and from step up 2, both have great soundtracks.

You could always start it off with them strutting around being movie stars and paparazzi or something... then wham, the music changes, they rip off clothes revealing wonderful hip-hop outfits, a "sick" beat comes in and they all start dancing!

Haha, I had fun just imagining that :)
