Step Afrika!’s production of The Migration: Reflections on Jacob Lawrence is made possible in part through an award from the John S. And James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge, which funds ideas that engage and enrich Detroit through the arts. 

In conjunction with the performance, Step Afrika will host five interactive workshops spread throughout the city of Detroit teaching those the basics to stepping and how to blend percussive dance styles practiced by historically African American fraternities and sororities. Step Afrika!, promotes stepping as an educational tool for young people, focusing on teamwork, academic achievement and cross-cultural understanding. These workshops will be on www.stepafrika.org page.
