The Step Afrika! company is coming to Georgia Southern University on Feb. 27 as part of the university’s Black Heritage Month celebration.

The company will be performing at the Performing Arts Center and the show will begin at 6 p.m.

Stepping is a dance that helps to blend African traditional dance and a variety of other dances. Stepping performances use storytelling, humor, songs, as well as the audience participation.

Originally founded in 1994, Step Afrika! is one of the first professional stepping companies in the world dedicated to keeping the tradition alive. The company performs worldwide to help spread the values of teamwork, discipline and commitment.

“Step Afrika! does a great job of intertwining culture, education and entertainment,” Takeshia Brown, director of the Office of Multicultural Affairs, said.

The Office of Multicultural Affairs is hosting Step Afrika! and is coordinating their performance here at GS.
