*OPENING NIGHT FILM*

This Sundance Award-winning documentary will put pep in your step! Step (or step-dancing) is a corporeal form of storytelling that originated during the slave trade when slaves used footsteps, hand claps and call-and-response songs to communicate and spread vital news. For three young black women who compete on a Baltimore high school step team, step is a call to action. Get focused! Work hard! Be empowered! To attain their dreams they must depend on sisterhood (and motherhood) to survive and thrive.
