The students attended a performance of the percussion dance troupe, Step Afrika! today. It was amazing! This dance style, that developed through African-American fraternities and sororities, had everyone moving. The troupe also explained how a form of this dance was used among South African miners as a way of communicating when language between them was a barrier. We found out that one of our students, Claivonda Taylor, was in a step group and now she is being encouraged to start a group in our own school. The performance was sponsored by Arts on Stage and took place at Goucher College. To learn more about StepAfrika!, Click this link. To learn more about Arts on Stage, Click here.
