Movies on the Grass film: 'STEP' Sept. 23

Submitted by Charlene Brownson

Movies on the Grass will show the film "STEP" at 8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 23, in Town Hall at the Leadership Studies Building. A dance performance will start at 7 p.m. and will feature the K-State Tap Ensemble in the lobby area outside of Town Hall. 

"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.

Movies on the Grass offers the campus and community new films that portray current issues in an informal setting. This is a free film series now in its 14th year. The films are usually screened outside Hale Library but have been temporarily moved because of the Hale Library fire.
