2015 Step Xplosion – Free Performance Friday at 8 pm
Step Afrika! kicks off their 2015-2106 season with a free performance starting at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 21 at Starburst Plaza. Artists from Step Afrika! will be joined by DJ Beauty and the Beatz for a high-energy demonstration of the art of stepping. Expect to join in with footsteps, claps, and spoken word as audience participation is encouraged.
Starting from an exchange tour to Soweto, South Africa, Step Afrika! is now one of the top 10 African American dance companies and the largest African American arts organization in DC. Don’t miss the show, especially if you have not had the opportunity to see them perform.
It is great that Starburst Plaza is seeing more positive events with organizations like this that use art to reach out to youth and families. We hope you can join Step Afrika! there as they celebrate 20 years of stepping.
