Step

  • Director: Amanda Lipitz
  • Genre(s): Documentary

  • Running Time: 83 min.

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.

"Step is a universal story of triumph. "
- John Fink, The Film Stage
"Emotionally involving material is the key element to a good human-interest documentary, and Lipitz, a Baltimore native with a background in Broadway producing, has tapped into a great story here of adversity, struggle and elevating achievement. "
- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
"Crowds will be pleased, tears will be shed and audiences should rally to the passion and drama onscreen. The stakes are high in Step."
- Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International
"Without any fuss, Lipitz has made a film deeply rooted in intergenerational relationships between women. "
- Geoff Berkshire, Variety
"The film is inspiring and funny and lovely, and you may find the words of one of the girls lingering: If you come together with a group of powerful women, the impact will be immense."
- Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
