The film is inspiring and funny and lovely, and you may find the words of one of the girls lingering: "If you come together with a group of powerful women, the impact will be immense."

This ebullient chronicle of a Baltimore girls step team's senior year matches a fascinating, worthy subject with unabashedly joyful filmmaking.

It seems impossible that someone won't snap up the rights to this uplifting success story and refashion it as a narrative teen pic.

You get a strong sense both of community and commitment, an intimate look at their lives as well as the thrill and excitement of their dance.

Running a quick 83 minutes, Step is as brisk as it is powerful.

[Lipitz gives] us an intimate view of the girls' day-to-day lives and reminds us that even though her subjects have noble intentions, they are still kids and flawed human beings.
