STEP (Afternoon Movie)

STEP documents the senior year of a girls’ high-school step dance team against the background of inner-city Baltimore.

As each one tries to become the first in their families to attend college, the girls strive to make their dancing a success against the backdrop of social unrest in the troubled city.

"This movie fires on every cylinder, investing viewers in personal stories that couldn't have higher stakes and inviting them on a journey that pays off in ways expected and utterly surprising."

Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"Heartening and unashamedly emotional, it's a certified crowd pleaser that doesn't care who knows it."

Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

"Lipitz's irresistible crowd-pleaser deftly balances the kids' juggling act of heartaches at home and in school, their dedication on the dance floor and their determination to achieve success."

Jim Brunzell III, Minneapolis Star Tribune
