I confess: I’m gripped by whether the fictional McKinley High School glee club will win regionals. But right now I also love a short documentary that finds a similar real-life drama closer to home — will Brooklyn Tech’s girls step team ever win a competition?
“Step Brooklyn” follows the high school team through the 2008-09 school year as steppers audition, balance rehearsals with heavy course-loads, and try to win for the first time in years. It’s fascinating, and it’s currently up for a Webby award. (Full disclosure: “Step Brooklyn” was produced by three former classmates of mine, so I’m partial.)
Here’s a teaser from the documentary. You can watch the full half-hour video here.
