Netflix released the trailer to the dance comedy Step Sisters (previously titled Ain’t No Half Steppin), which will be launching exclusively on Netflix on January 19, 2018.

Jamilah Bishop (Megalyn Echikunwoke) seems to excel at everything: She’s president of her sorority, captain of the step dance crew, liaison to the college dean and a star student who is on her way to to Harvard Law School.
