A Step Away was an extremely progressive and unusual show piggybacking off of J.Lo’s Dance Again World Tour in 2012, starring her backup dancers in their own unique docuseries.
We followed the major twists and turns of P!nk taking one of Jennifer’s dancers mid-run of a 60 part world tour and the drama of her having to replace one of her strongest team members, as well as the beautiful and exotic locations that often gave her entire tour serious disadvantages. But they still managed to have a ton of fun!
I was the editor across 7 episodes, and we came up with such fun storylines for each dancer and great arcs for the whole series.
It was the wild west of editing and crafting narratives, and we loved discussing which stories we thought were most valuable and finally coming to an agreement to tell truly compelling tales.
Here’s another fun clip I edited:
Absolutely do not drop J.Lo.
And just for fun, here’s Jen performing with Wisin y Yandel in Puerto Rico:
