Step Afrika! is the world’s first professional company dedicated to the tradition of stepping — a polyrhythmic, percussive dance form that uses the body as an instrument. Based on Step Afrika!’s award-winning arts education programs and more than 25 years of performing and teaching students, the Company has created FIVE DAYS WITH STEP AFRIKA! to support the academic environment as well as the challenges of virtual learning.

There are five energetic episodes that can be watch in numerical order, or any order you’d like.

  • Episode 1: What is Stepping? (12 minutes)
  • Episode 2: The Performance, Part 1 (20 minutes)
  • Episode 3: The Performance, Part 2 (20 minutes)
  • Episode 4: Stepping with Step Afrika! (13 minutes)
  • Episode 5: Meet the Artists of Step Afrika! (15 minutes)

Founded in 1994, Step Afrika! blends percussive dance styles practiced by historically African American fraternities and sororities; traditional West and Southern African dances; and an array of contemporary dance and art forms into a cohesive, compelling artistic experience. Performances are much more than dance shows; they integrate songs, storytelling, humor and audience participation. The blend of technique, agility, and pure energy makes each performance unique and leaves the audience with their hearts pounding. To learn more about the company visit stepafrika.com
