Grades 5+

Stepping is a percussive, rhythmic dance style combining African and modern dance traditions. This professional company performs pieces from their full-length work, The Migration, based on Jacob Lawrence’s iconic painting series that charts the story of African-Americans moving from the south to the north in the early 1900s. High-energy performance combines with the images, color palette and motifs of the paintings.
