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!
