Step Afrika

Most of us know stepping as performed in competitions and shows by black fraternities and sororities — an explosive mix of synchronized kicks, stomps, dance steps and claps combined with chants and spoken-word elements. It’s a sort of physical one-upmanship. Step Afrika, the first group of its kind, takes that tradition one step further, adding even more dance elements. Think the Alphas meet Alvin Ailey. 8 p.m. Miller Outdoor Theatre, 6000 Hermann Park Drive. For information, call 281-373-3386 or visit www.milleroutdoortheatre.org. Free.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
