Event description

Description

Step Afrika! is the first professional dance Company in the world dedicated to the tradition of stepping. The company began in 1994 as an exchange program with the Soweto Dance Theatre of Johannesburg, South Africa and has expanded to become an international touring Company presenting performance, residencies and workshops worldwide.

Today, the Company continues to promote an appreciation for stepping as a contemporary dance genre and its use as an educational, motivational and healthy tool for young people. Step Afrika! accomplishes this mission through arts education activities, international cultural exchange programs and performances. We believe that the values of teamwork, discipline and commitment are essential to success in stepping and throughout life. We structure our performances and educational programs to connect intimately with our audience and create a positive influence on students’ lives.

Over the past 19 years Step Afrika! has grown to become one of the top 10 African American Dance Companies in the US and the largest African American led arts organization in Washington, DC. Each year, the Company performs in 10 countries for more than 50,000 people and touches 23,000 youth through its arts education programs. Step Afrika! gets people moving — towards college, towards a greater appreciation for the arts and towards a better understanding of each other.

This engagement of Step Afrika is made possible through the Special Presenters Initiative program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Delaware Division of the Arts.
