Jacob Lawrence once said “All artists are constantly looking for something.” In 2016, Step Afrika! is looking to celebrate African-American history, interpret two of the giants of American arts and expand the creative conversation with the production of two incredible works.

First, in September, our acclaimed The Migration: Reflections on Jacob Lawrence will return to the DC stage in honor of the centennial of Lawrence’s birth before beginning a national tour.

In December, we will create an all new evening length step performance based on Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker in collaboration with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

The Gala is Step Afrika!’s most important source of funds for The Migration and Ellington’s Nutcracker. Your participation in the event will allow us to create choreography, build sets, design costumes and, very importantly, provide dedicated rehearsal studio time for each production.
