Step Afrika!

Get in step!

Step Afrika! returns for another exhilarating performance that celebrates the uniquely American tradition of stepping.

Stepping is a dance form that uses the body as a percussive instrument to create rhythms that pound the floor and fill the air in super-charged performances. The stepping tradition grew out of song and dance rituals practiced by historically African American fraternities and sororities and shares a lineage with African foot dances.

Step Afrika! blends stepping with traditional African dances and live drumming to create pulse-pounding, foot-stomping, hand-clapping performances that audiences love!

Step Afrika! is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Crane Group.
