Description

Step Afrika! combines dance, song, storytelling and humor to create a heart-pounding experience and celebrates the African American tradition of stepping.
When Africans lost the right to use their drums, the beats found their way into the body of the people — the Drumfolk. New percussive art forms took root and made way for tap, beatboxing, and the African American tradition of stepping.
