Step Xplosion is a celebration of the art form of stepping presented by Step Afrika! and Strathmore.

Honoring its rich roots in the African American fraternity and sorority experience, this show emphasizes the presence of stepping in the daily and future lives of students. This year’s collaborative production will feature the local premiere of The Movement, a new work choreographed by longstanding Step Afrika! performer Conrad Kelly II. Opening only one other time in NYC, Step Afrika! is incredibly excited to bring the work home to the DMV.

Featuring dynamic performances from some of the most exciting and innovative step teams, Xplosion is a MUST NOT MISS event!
