Founded in 1994, Step Afrika! is the world's first professional company dedicated to stepping--where dancers create extraordinary performances using their bodies as instruments. Step Afrika! uses body percussion and dance to create a lively visual interpretation of painter Jacob Lawrence's iconic Migration Series. Lawrence's paintings depict the Great Migration of African Americans from the rural South to cities in the North, Midwest, and West between World War I and World War II. This performance is presented in partnership with The Grand Opera House, and Delaware State University.
