An energetic exploration of the human form, Step Afrika! performs a riveting mix of dance, body percussion, and spoken word certain to inspire audiences of all ages. Step Afrika!, founded in 1994, is the first professional dance company dedicated to the tradition of stepping, a unique art form created at African-American fraternities and based in rich African dance traditions. Incorporating intricate rhythmic patterns of kicks, stomps, claps, and chants, the dancers of Step Afrika! use their bodies as instruments. The dancers’ stomping feet and chanting voices will transform the DCA stage into a rare and joyful space – one where bodily movement is celebrated as a deep well of power, humor, and grace.
