Step Afrika!, the first professional dance company in the world devoted to the tradition of stepping, will kickoff the Penn State Berks Arts and Lecture Series on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, at 8:00 p.m. in Perkins Student Center Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

Critically acclaimed for its efforts to promote an understanding of and appreciation for stepping, Step Afrika! reaches tens of thousands of Americans each year—also performing on stages in South America, Europe, and Africa.

Step Afrika! has been featured on CNN, BET, PBS, and NPR, as well as in numerous books, documentaries, and articles that explore the tradition of stepping. In addition, the dance company serves as a cultural ambassador for the United States, representing the nation at events around the world through exclusive invitations from American embassies.
