Step to This

We're working on a screenplay about two opposing college dance squads (a square-dance team and a step team) who face off in nationwide competition to defend the honor of their fraternities and the wizened coaches who taught them the tradition and techniques of their respective dances. For some reason, both coaches would be Asian. Naturally the step team would win, flawlessly blending elements of African tribal dance with flashier, more contemporary street moves. Also, this will establish up-and-coming rappers Li'l Woof Woof and Skizzy G as Tinseltown's hottest new talents. The Black Academy of Arts and Letters present the DFW High School Stepshow 7 p.m. Friday at the Bruton Theatre, 650 S. Griffin St. Tickets are $10. Visit
