Step Afrika! has been dedicated to youth and family audiences since its inception. We bring the art and energy of stepping to K-12 and college students of all backgrounds. We have become a model for the use of stepping as an educational tool. Our artists are college graduates who tailor their teaching to the appropriate age and setting.
Our programs are based on proven educational practices, developed through partnerships with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ Education Department, Washington Performing Arts Society’s Concert-in-Schools Program, and the Arts for Every Student program, run by the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative.
Arts Education – Mid Atlantic Region
We offer programs year-round for students of all ages in the Washington, DC area with a variety of scheduling options, including one-time workshops, ongoing weekly sessions, and summer experiences.
Arts Education – North America
We also offer arts education opportunities in communities that are hosting a Step Afrika! performance. If you are interested in having Step Afrika! come to a school in your area, please check our touring calendar – we may be near you sometime soon!
Step Afrika!’s Arts Education programs are supported in part by an award from the National Endowment from the Arts. Art Works.
