Stepping Out (1991)

Film details


Mavis Turner, a once promising chorus liner, has lost confidence in her abilities as a performer due to her belittling boyfriend Patrick whom she lives with. Instead of fulfilling her potential she spends her time either singing with him in a small bar or teaching tap dancing to a class of amateurs in an abandoned church. However when she and her class are asked to do a charity performance at the prestigious Centre for the Performing Arts, Mavis gets her chance to prove herself at last. The question is, will her class be up to it?
