Step Afrika! to Perform Sept. 16

September 8, 2017

Dance troupe Step Afrika! is set to take the stage at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 16, in the Auditorium of the Haidee and Allen Wild Center for the Arts.

With its origins in African-American fraternities and sororities, stepping is known for its intricate, synchronized patterns of stomps, kicks, claps, and call-and-response. As the world’s first professional company dedicated to this art form, the dancers of Step Afrika! use their bodies as instruments, integrating stepping with African traditional dance and other dance forms to create a high-energy, sharply choreographed, and incredibly entertaining performance.

Tickets for Step Afrika! are $7 for adults and $5 for those under age 18 or over age 62. Tickets will be available at the door the evening of the show.

The Center for the Arts is on the northeast corner of Austin and Tower streets in Nevada, Missouri.
