HOME PERFORMANCE SERIES
Every June, Step Afrika! returns home after months of touring. The Home Performance Series is a special end to the Company’s season. In the 2019-2020 season, Step Afrika! is excited to perform Drumfolk.
Step Afrika!’s Drumfolk, inspired by the Stono Rebellion of 1739, explores this little-known event in American history that would forever transform African-American life and culture. When Africans lost the right to use their drums, the beats found their way into the body of the people, the Drumfolk. New percussive forms took root leading to the development of some of our country’s most distinct performance traditions like the ring shout, tap, and stepping.
MAGICAL MUSICAL HOLIDAY STEP SHOW
The Holiday Season becomes even more magnificent when celebrated with the Step Afrika! family. Every year, the Company performs for DC families and engages the community in their festive performance. Be sure to join in the family tradition that is now 7 years strong.
