“In the bodies of these skilled performers, the beat is obviously unstoppable. Again and again, the dancers pick it up and pass it around with clapping hands and stomping feet, through the legs, behind the back, defiant and unified and inspiring.” The New York Times

Drums were once outlawed among enslaved Africans in the American South as a way of curtailing communication, connection and culture. But rhythm could not be suppressed, and it was preserved and transmitted through body percussion: juba, hambone, tap dance and stepping. Step Afrika! continues and extends the long tradition of stepping, integrating contemporary dance and art forms with songs, storytelling, humor and audience participation to create a compelling artistic experience that will leave your heart pounding.
