Event Description

Founded in 1994 by C. Brian Williams, Step Afrika! is the first professional company dedicated to the tradition of stepping. 

Under Mr. Williams' leadership, stepping has evolved into one of America's cultural exports, touring more than 50 countries across the globe.

By blending percussive dance styles practiced by historically Black fraternities and sororities, traditional West and Southern African dances, and an array of contemporary dance and art forms, you will witness a cohesive, compelling artistic experience. 

Performances are much more than dance shows. 

They integrate songs, storytelling, humor, and audience participation. 

Step Afrika! promotes stepping as an educational tool for young people, focusing on teamwork, academic achievement, and cross-cultural understanding. 

All programs, artists, dates, policies, prices and times are subject to change.
