Step Afrika!

February 25, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$36 – $78

Drums were once outlawed among enslaved Africans in the American South as a way of curtailing communication, connection, and culture. But rhythm was preserved and transmitted through body percussion: juba, hambone, tap dance, and stepping. The dancers of Washington DC’s celebrated Step Afrika! troupe continue and extend a long tradition of stepping—song and dance rituals performed by Black fraternities and sororities since the early 1900s.
