Description: This show brings the African-American art form of stepping to the stage in a high-energy performance where Afro-urban rhythms and personal narratives relay individual stories and explore a cultural legacy. Based in New York City, the ensemble hails from around the globe. Influences such as Savion Glover and Debbie Allen and the gumboot dancers in the mines of South Africa inspire every slap of the thigh, twist of the hip, turn of the foot, and jump in the air. The performance will be followed by a JUST-US Dialogue.
