Step Afrika!

Founded in 1994, Step Afrika! is the first professional company in the world dedicated to the tradition of stepping. It promotes an appreciation for stepping and its use as an educational, motivational and healthy tool for young people. It accomplishes this mission through arts education activities, international cultural exchange programs and performances world-wide.

Step Afrika! has bought stepping and its associated values of teamwork, commitment and discipline to students in DC classrooms, at non-traditional dance venues and our city’s performing arts venues for more than 20 years. It has been named one of the top ten African American dance companies in the US by Dance USA and has represented DC and the US as an official Cultural Ambassador in countries as diverse as Croatia, South Sudan and Samoa.
