Step Afrika! serves as a cultural ambassador, representing the nation and the tradition of stepping to international audiences.
We partner with the U.S. State Department, Navy Entertainment, and other national and international organizations to hold performances and workshops for communities around the world.
As part of our international tour, Step Afrika! joins with local dance groups and other arts organizations to develop performances that blend the styles of different cultures and create a unique experience for the audience.
Drumfolk is a powerful piece inspired by the Stono Rebellion of 1739. Step Afrika! blends songs, storytelling and dance to explore a little-known event in American history that led to some of our country’s most distinct performance traditions.
