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.

Step Afrika! is supported by the U.S. Bank Foundation
Step Afrika! is supported, in part, by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts - Art Works program.

Step Afrika! is sponsored, in part, by Bernick's, D.J. Bitzan Jewelers and Plaza Park Bank.
