Step Afrika!’s signature performance shares the step tradition of audience participation and closes with a complex, polyrhythmic percussive symphony that brings audiences to their feet.
VPAT is honored to be welcoming Step Afrika!. This will be an evening that will celebrate community, culture and the art of dance.
Step Afrika! was founded in 1994 as an exchange program with the Soweto Dance Theatre of Johannesburg. It is one of the top five African American dance companies in the United States and the largest African American-led arts organization in Washington, D.C. The company’s full-time dancers integrate songs, storytelling, humor and audience participation into their performances.
