"All About Two-Steppin'' is a planned 90-minute documentary on this Kansas City Style of dancing produced by Rodney Thompson and Stinson McClendon. As part of the documentary the filmmakers, along with Anita Dixon and De Barker produced a series of dance lessons/contests leading up to a final contest for a total of $10,000 in cash and prizes.
On December 18, 2003 the final dance contest was held. There may be more, next year. Here are some of the pictures.
The documentary makers are Stimson McClendon and Rodney Thompson - Reel Images Film & Video Group. From the flyer by Reel Images Film & Video Inc. : "The documentary will delve into the art of the Kansas City style and the subculture that surrounds it; all the while examining the attitudes, personal flair, music of the eras and the personal lives of a few chosen ''steppers.''
