• STEP (2017, 84 minutes, Rated PG) Directed by Amanda Lipitz

STEP documents the senior year of a girls’ high-school step dance team in inner-city Baltimore. As each one tries 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 the troubled city. “In the wounded wake of the protests that ripped through Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray in April 2015, the inaugural class of the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women began its senior year, which is chronicled with intense participation in STEP,” wrote The Hollywood Reporter, “A great story here of adversity, struggle and elevating achievement.”

Director Amanda Lipitz is an American director/producer of films and Broadway shows. After graduating from NYU, she began producing theatre in New York, making her Broadway debut at age 24 as a producer of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

Her Broadway credits also include the Tony Award-winning productions of A View from the Bridge and The Humans.
