Stepping Out

The play revolves around eight students, who all attend the same weekly tap dancing class in a dingy North London church hall.

The students come to class every week to chat, relax and, if they can manage to, lean a couple of dance steps. However, the steps and routines are just the background for the real focus of the play, the relationships and interactions of these very different people.

“Stepping Out” is a warm and very funny play about the lives, laughs and loves of a group of women (and one man) attending a weekly tap-dance class in a church hall in North London. We then follow the tap class, from hesitant start, to their first public performance. The play scratches at the surface of each character to reveal hidden secrets, hopes and fears in an entertaining mix of wit and poignancy.
