Preconcert Panel Discussion
Step Afrika! The Next 25 Years

Mansion at Strathmore

Join Step Afrika!, members of the Divine Nine (historically Black sororities and fraternities), along with step team experts, for a lively conversation about the arts and activism; the tradition of stepping and its impact on students and communities - leading to creative responses to America’s challenges; and, what we can do individually and collectively to make positive change.

Seating is limited, and advance registration is highly recommended.

Access to the preconcert panel discussion is free with a performance ticket. Please be sure to have your performance ticket with you when checking in. Seats will be available for pre-registrants only until 3:20pm, at which point remaining seats will be released to those in the standby line.
