Step is the true-life story of a girls’ high school Step team called The Lethal Ladies, set against the background of the heart of Baltimore.
“An inspiring, energetic crowd-pleaser! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll cheer.” – Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily
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, The Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, 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.
