Step



Published on Apr 13, 2017
STEP is the true-life story of a girls’ high-school step team set against the background of the heart of Baltimore. These young women learn to laugh, love and thrive – on and off the stage – even when the world seems to work against them. Empowered by their teachers, teammates, counselors, coaches and families, they chase their ultimate dreams: to win a step championship and to be accepted into college.

This all female school is reshaping the futures of its students’ lives by making it their goal to have every member of their senior class accepted to and graduate from college, many of whom will be the first in their family to do so. Deeply insightful and emotionally inspiring, STEP embodies the true meaning of sisterhood through a story of courageous young women worth cheering for.

In Theaters August 4, 2017

Directed by: Amanda Lipitz

9. What state are you in?

Just curious. I'm having enough trouble figuring how to visit this cool town two hours away, for a weekend! My two pupperz would be too much to deal with. Well, Ittybitty would be easy, but Pookie wouldn't! He's loveable but also, a HANDFUL! Lol!

I haven't been away on a vacation in a lonnnng time... I miss it, but it's a huge hassle finding a babysitter I could trust with my little stinkers.

15. It's excellent

I had the privilege of seeing this movie a couple weeks ago at a pre-release screening, with a Q and A with the producers and four of the people featured in it. It was so well done, so moving and inspiring, that I thought about it for days afterward.
