September 12, 2022

Get ready to be in awe as the sounds of West and Southern Africa make their way to the Midlands. Coming to Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College (HT@MTC),  Saturday, September 17 at 7:30 p.m., Step Afrika! is sure to have you caught up in their  interactive performance.

“Step Afrika! combines dance, music, and storytelling into a high-energy performance” says Kristin Cobb, executive director of HT@MTC. “But just as importantly, they help audiences gain a broader understanding of different cultures and art forms, both historical and modern.”
Founded in 1994 by C. Brian Williams, Step Afrika! is the first professional company  dedicated to the tradition of stepping. The group combines percussive dance styles often used by many historically African American fraternities and sororities and an array of contemporary dance. Their work is also featured at the National Museum of African  American History and Culture. 
“Their performances isn’t just a dance show,” Cobb added. “The blend of technique, agility, and the rush of energy makes each performance unique will leave you with your heart pounding.”
