"Stepping Out" is a 1987 Broadway play by Richard Harris. It won the Evening Standard Comedy of the Year award in 1984.

Plot

The play revolves around eight students, which all attend the same weekly tap dancing class in a dingy North London church hall. The students come to class every week to chat, relax and, if they can manage to, learn a couple of dance steps. However, the steps and routines are just the background for the real focus of the play, the relationships and interactions of these very different people.
