The sounds of West and Southern Africa are making their way to the Midlands. Step Afrika. is coming to Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College (HT@MTC) this Saturday, September 17 at 7:30 pm.
“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 aren’t just a dance show,” Cobb said. “The blend of technique, agility, and the rush of energy makes each performance unique will leave you with your heart pounding.”
Tickets can be bought by calling the box office at 803.407.5011 or visiting HarbisonTheatre.org.
