Praised as one of the most entertaining and heartwarming of recent documentaries, Amanda Lipitz’s Step follows the Lethal Ladies step team from the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, an inner city charter school that helps underserved girls prepare for college. At the center of the film are three seniors, all members of the step team. As we follow their lives we understand what challenges they each face and how stepping—a dance style that combines gymnastics, tap, and hip-hop—provides a source of motivation and empowerment. “The film’s success is directly dependent on the personalities—and achievements—of the young women highlighted . . . Blessin, Cori, and Tayla make you smile, make you worry, and make you root for them” (New York Times).
