Step Afrika

February 25, 2023 @ 8:00 PM PST

Step Afrika

Drums were once outlawed among enslaved Africans in the American South as a way of curtailing communication, connection, and culture. But rhythm could not be suppressed, and it was preserved and transmitted through body percussion: juba, hambone, tap dance, and stepping. The virtuosic dancers of Washington DC’s celebrated Step Afrika! troupe continue and extend a long tradition of stepping—elaborate and joyful song and dance rituals performed by Black fraternities and sororities since the early 1900s.
