Step Afrika!

Weis Center Concert Hall

Run time: 80 minutes, no intermission

Founded in 1994 by C. Brian Williams, Step Afrika! is the first professional company
dedicated to the tradition of stepping. Under Williams’s leadership, stepping has evolved
into one of America’s cultural exports, touring more than 50 countries across the globe.
Step Afrika! now ranks as one of the top 10 African American dance companies in the
United States.

Step Afrika! blends percussive dance styles practiced by historically African American
fraternities and sororities, traditional west and southern African dances and an array of
contemporary dance and art forms into a cohesive, compelling artistic experience.
Performances are much more than dance shows; they integrate songs, storytelling,
humor and audience participation. The blend of technique, agility, and pure energy
makes each performance unique and leaves the audience with their hearts pounding.

At the Weis Center, they will perform the self-titled work Step Afrika! It introduces
audiences to the tradition of stepping through both a traditional and contemporary lens.
The performance features nine to 10 artists/musicians who demonstrate stepping’s
origins in African American fraternities and sororities while showing the art form’s
unlimited creative and artistic potential. Also featured is a suite of traditional South
African dances including the powerful dance of the Zulu Nation and the poly-rhythmic

South African gumboot dance. Step Afrika! has studied and performed both of these
traditions for over 25 years. StepAfrika.org
