Class Acts Arts’ Feature Artist Step Afrika Celebrating 20th Anniversary

Just like Class Acts Arts, Step Afrika! is 20 this year.  A long standing part of the Class Acts Arts family, Step Afrika! is the first professional company in the world dedicated to the tradition of stepping.  An important part of America’s artistic and cultural heritage, stepping uses the body as an instrument to create intricate rhythms and sounds through a combination of footsteps, claps and voice.
 
Step Africa!’s performance and educational programming, promotes stepping and its use as an educational, motivational and healthy tool for young people. They were named one of the top 10 African American Dance Companies in the US by Dance USA and, most recently, created a brand new production entitled “Green is the New Black”.  This new piece combines dance with state of the art technology, lighting the stage with the power of stepping.
