On january 19th Netflix released a new movie called Stepsisters. Not stepsisters as in halfsisters, but as in stepping. Stepping is a dance style in which the footwork is the most important part of the dance. Jamilah seems to have it all. She’s the president of her sorority, captain of the step dance crew, student liaison and a boyfriend. She really wants to go to Harvard and will do anything for it. When the partying girl from Sigma Beta Beta embarrass the school, Jamilah has to help them by teaching them stepdancing. They have to win Steptacular.
Best Netflix original ever? Absolutely not. Entertaining when you are really bored and you needs some distraction? Yeah maybe! If you are into movies likes ‘Pitch perfect’ and ‘Bring it on’.

I also saw on Youtube people commenting about racism, because the black people tell the white ones that they can’t step. It’s because of theire cultural background. First of all, I was not offended at all by this. And I also suggest you watch the whole movie before you say something.
