Step Afrika

Student Matinee Series Step Afrika

  • Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center in Stowe Map It
  • All Grades

  • $8.50

The first professional dance company dedicated to the tradition of stepping, Step Afrika draws on percussive dance styles that grew out of African American communities, African traditional dance, and influences from a variety of other dance and art forms. The company incorporates movement, words, and sounds to communicate allegiance, with a special focus on teamwork and cross-cultural understanding. Though rooted in raw movement, Step Afrika’s award-winning performances are much more than dance shows; they integrate songs, storytelling, humor, and audience participation in a blend of technique and agility that’s guaranteed to drop more than a few jaws.

Links to African and African American history and culture, self-expression, ensemble, communication
