If you liked STOMP then you’ll love the astounding energy of Step Afrika! Like a tap without shoes, or a band without instruments, stepping is percussive dance that uses kicks, stomps, claps and chants – all linked to African and modern dance traditions. As the first professional company devoted to stepping, the world-renowned Step Afrika! brings a high-energy performance to the stage in this feast for both the eyes and ears.

“Electrifying talents… always visually and musically exciting” —The Washington Post



Step Afrika! is the first professional company in the world dedicated to the tradition of stepping. Founded in December 1994, the company is celebrated internationally for its efforts to promote an appreciation for stepping and the dance tradition’s use as an educational tool for young people. Step Afrika! reaches tens of thousands of Americans each year and has performed on many stages in North & South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Caribbean.
