Liza in her prime

STEPPING OUT is Liza Minnelli's last big-screen feature to date, before she concentrated on her concert performances and her health started to decline.

Liza plays Mavis Turner, a has-been Broadway hoofer who now teaches tap lessons and sings in a bar in her spare time. The charming group of misfits who all come together once a week for their tap lesson share with Mavis the joys and sadness of their lives. When the group is asked to perform at a charity gala, they realise what the group really can accomplish.

STEPPING OUT is a blue-haired version of A CHORUS LINE, charming, poignant and occasionally heartbreaking. The immensely-talented ensemble of actors featured represent some of the best talent in movies today.

Among the actors are seasoned veteran Broadway performers Ellen Greene, Jane Krakowski and Bill Irwin, along with Canadian actress Sheila McCarthy and legendary Shelley Winters and Julie Walters.

Liza shows us her stuff in some great dance numbers, while her vocal prowess is also given time to shine.

A memorable film and very inspirational, STEPPING OUT is a great old-fashioned, feel-good movie.
