STG Presents the Five Days with Step Afrika! student matinee program from February 22 - March 5, 2021. This program is open to schools and educators only.
Step Afrika! is the world’s first professional company dedicated to the tradition of stepping—a polyrhythmic, percussive dance form that uses the body as an instrument.
Based on Step Afrika!’s award-winning arts education programs and more than twenty-five years of performing and teaching students, the Company has created Five Days with Step Afrika! to support the academic environment as well as the challenges of virtual learning. Registrants will receive access to these videos to watch on demand.
