First Thursday Films: “Step” – 3/1

7pm Thursday, March 1   Purchase Tickets in Advance – $5   Watch the Trailer

Step is the true-life story of a girls’ high school step team set against the background of the heart of Baltimore. These young women learn to laugh, love and thrive – on and off the stage – even when the world seems to work against them. Empowered by their teachers, teammates, counselors, coaches and families, they chase their ultimate dreams: to win a step championship and to be accepted into college.

This all female school is reshaping the futures of its students’ lives by making it their goal to have every member of their senior class accepted to and graduate from college, many of whom will be the first in their family to do so. Deeply insightful and emotionally inspiring, STEP embodies the true meaning of sisterhood through a story of courageous young women worth cheering for.

Each First Thursday Films screening at the Capri is followed by a passionate discussion of the movie. For Step we welcome Neda Renee Kellogg.  She is the Founding Executive Director of Project DIVA and CEO of Successful Connections, LLC.  Kellogg works with a team of coaches and consultants to bring Black girls extraordinary personal and professional opportunities as they transition into adulthood after high school.
