Stepping Out follows the lives and loves of an unlikely group of women - and one man - as they stumble through their weekly tap class in a shabby North London church hall. Mavis (played by Liza Minnelli in the popular 1991 film adaptation) is an out-of-work professional dancer/actor who runs the amateur tap class to support herself between occasional paid gigs. Pressure rises when Mavis decides to enter the class into a public fundraiser concert performance night. There’s only one problem, they are terrible at tapping. This story is equal parts slapstick and soul. These women give 99% of their time to the men in their lives, but their tap class is their time. It’s group therapy, in leg warmers and top hats.
