      EVENT DETAILS
      Step Afrika!

      Step Afrika! is the first professional company in the world dedicated to the tradition of stepping. Based in Washington, DC, Step Afrika! is DC's first and only Cultural Ambassador representing the city and nation at events around the world.

      In stepping, the body is used as an instrument to create intricate rhythms and sounds through a combination of footsteps, claps and spoken word. The tradition grew out of the song and dance rituals practiced by historically African American fraternities and sororities in the early 1900s. Stepping comes from a long and rich tradition in African-based communities that use movement, words and sounds to communicate allegiance to a group. "...the terrific and rousing finale by eight members of Step Afrika!...a jubilation of rhythm and spirit that harks back to the essence of dancing: people moving together in harmony for the greater good." - Deborah Jowitt, The Village Voice.

      Admission Fee: $25/$35
