“Fusing gospel music with tap, stepping, and gorgeous gumboot dancing” - The New York Times

After thrilling Lied Center audiences in 2021, Step Afrika! returns with lightning-fast footwork, percussive chants, and incredible synchronicity, creating a heart-pounding experience and celebrating the African American tradition of stepping. Based on Jacob Lawrence’s iconic paintings The Migration Series that chart the story of African American migrants moving from the south to the north in the early 1900s, Step Afrika’s powerful new work uses the images and motifs of visual art to tell the migration story through body percussion and dance.
