To celebrate International Dance Day, we’ll be watching step by Amanda Lipitz

STEP (2017)

The senior year of a girls’ high school step team in inner-city Baltimore is documented, as they try 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 their troubled city.

“The girls’ passion to excel is palpable, and the film fulfills its inspirational function by summoning up time-tested elements”.

Wall Street Journal


Step is both a buoyantly uplifting celebration of African-American womanhood and the dedicated educators who have their backs”.

Roger Ebert

In 1982, the International Dance Day was first celebrated marking the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), the creator of modern ballet. International Dance Day was started to spread the message of the benefits of dance, celebrate dance and bring people together.
