 Step Afrika!, the first professional company in the world dedicated to the tradition of stepping,  is excited to host its inaugural Step! Houston Summer Camp at the Imani School in Southwest Houston. Step! Houston is a performance-based camp for students ages 9-17 who have previous dance experience and are prepared for intense dance training from internationally-acclaimed artists.  Step Afrika! holds week-long step camps for young people around the world. Led by the award-winning and multi-talented artists of Step Afrika!, our camps combine core Step Afrika! values of teamwork, commitment, discipline and academic achievement with excellent performance and artistic training. Each camp culminates with a “unity step” performance for family, friends and the general public. Before stepping appeared in movies or commercials, stepping served as a form of expression for African-American fraternities and sororities and these groups used stepping as a way to express cohesion and pride.  The Step! Houston Summer Camp will allow students to explore “stepping” and develop their own step routines.  Students will also experience the South African “Gumboot” Dance; modern and hip-hop dance; and Step Afrika!’s interactive Step Up to College curriculum.  Don’t miss this incredible opportunity for your child/student/step team to step and perform with some of the best steppers/artists in the world today!STEP!
