'The Fits' Takes Viewers Inside The World Of Innovative Dance

Email a Friend

Some critics are calling “The Fits” one of the best overlooked movies of 2016. It tells the story of the Lionesses, a girls’ drill team in Cincinnati that specializes in innovative dance forms. The movie uses members of the real Cincinnati drill team, Q-Kidz, in the cast.

We revisit a conversation from June 2016 in which Here & Now‘s Robin Young spoke with Q-Kidz member Royalty Hightower, “The Fits” director Anna Rose Holmer (@BARFH) and Marquicia Jones Woods, associate producer of the film and founder and director of the Q-Kidz.
