Founded by C. Brian Williams, Step Afrika! is the first professional company dedicated to the tradition of stepping. As one of the top ten African-American dance companies in the United States, it has evolved into one of America’s cultural global exports.    

The company blends percussive dance styles practiced by historically African-American fraternities and sororities, traditional West and South African dances, and an array of contemporary dance and art forms into a cohesive, compelling artistic experience. Integrating songs, storytelling, humor and audience participation, the unique performances blend technique, agility, and heart-pounding energy.

TRIBUTE pays homage to the African American step show. The work combines the distinct stepping styles from different fraternities and sororities and blends them together to showcase the incredible variety of stepping. Tribute includes all the exciting elements of the step show–the use of props, ripples and floor work, creative formations and audience participation. 

ASL interpretation will be provided for this performance.
