With its origins in African American fraternities and sororities, stepping is known for its intricate, synchronized patterns of stomps, kicks, claps, and call-and-response. As the world’s first professional company dedicated to this art form, the dancers of Step Afrika use their bodies as instruments, integrating stepping with African traditional dance and other dance forms to create a high-energy, sharply choreographed, and incredibly entertaining performance.
Running Time: Approximately 90 minutes, no intermission
Note: Please join us at 7pm in the Mezzanine Lounge for a pre-show discussion and Q&A with Artist Director/Founder C. Brian Williams and others.
This engagement of Step Afrika! is made possible through the ArtsCONNECT program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
