“This film is a tribute to the bravery and conviction of young women who faced serious adversity and leaned on their sisterhood with each other to persevere together.” – Director Amanda Lipitz
A feature length documentary conceived and directed by Amanda Lipitz, STEP is the true-life story of the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women’s (BLSYW) step team. Set again the background of the heart of Baltimore, STEP chronicles the trials and triumphs of seniors on the step team as they chase their ultimate dreams: to win a step championship and to be accepted into college. Empowered by their teachers, teammates, counselors, coaches and families, the young women learn to laugh, love and thrive—on and off the stage—even when the world seems to work against them. STEP embodies the true meaning of sisterhood through a story of courageous young women worth cheering for.
