Documentary following students, parents and teachers in preparation for a step-dance competition and life lessons!
12 July 2017 | by djowens-472-268234See all my reviews

STEP exceeded my expectations! Variety has called it ""Hoop Dreams" for the social media generation". I was skeptical - another doc on the marginalize. But this is different thanks to the filmmaker – who entertained while documenting a slice of life for this group of students, parents and their teachers. See it!
