About this show

A beat for every brushstroke, Step Afrika! brings to life Jacob Lawrence's The Migration Series, a landmark collection of paintings about the largest demographic transformation in United States history. Fusing body percussion, tap, and contemporary dance with live gospel, jazz, and blues, the world's first professional company dedicated to the tradition of stepping uses uniquely American art forms to tell this uniquely American story. Experience the journey of the millions of African-Americans who moved from the rural South to the urban North to rebuild their lives in this powerful, polyrhythmic performance.
