Stepping Out is a comedy about the attempts of some working-class amateurs to overcome their inhibitions, and left feet, in a low-rent theater space in northern Minnesota. Mavis, a former professional chorus girl tries her hardest to teach the bumbling amateurs some tap steps before an upcoming recital. But before the dancing begins, Mavis must mediate the minor dramas that erupt amongst this motley, but lovable, crew on their way to triumph at their recital. Liza Minelli starred as Mavis in the popular film.

With "Stepping Out" the question seems to be: 'Is life imitating art or is art imitating life?' The answer depends on which night of rehearsal you attend. This last week I blocked scenes from the show on Monday and Wednesday; on Tuesday and Thursday Wendy choreographed the dances. It has been so interesting to note how closely the dialogue and the actions from the show match the conversations and events of the dance rehearsals. The top photo is Wendy working with the dancers. The bottom photo reflects Mavis (played by Jenny Kiffmeyer) working with her dance class in the play.
"Stepping Out" runs April 4 - 7 at the Franklin Arts Center. Tickets will be available soon.
