Dallas Black Dance Theatre (DBDT) kicks off its 2018-2019 season with its 13th Annual DanceAfrica, October 5-6, 2018, in the Dallas Arts District. The Friday and Saturday evening performances at the Moody Performance Hall feature guest artist Washington, D.C. based Step Afrika!, which celebrates the historic connection between African dance and stepping. Co-sponsored by MUFG Union Bank and Texas Commission on the Arts, DanceAfrica celebrates the rich heritage and ancestry of Africa.

Step Afrika! travels the world jubilantly demonstrating the link between African dance and the art form of stepping, a ritual for African American fraternities and sororities across America. Step Afrika! Founder and Executive Director C. Brian Williams learned to step as a member of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity at Howard University in 1989. After living in Africa, he began to research stepping and discovered it draws movements from African dances. Fraternities and sororities are welcome to wear their organization colors to the evening performances.

Experience the drums, the movements and the vibrancy of African culture as all five Dallas Black Dance Theatre companies: DBDT, DBDT: Encore!, Allegro Performing Ensemble, Senior Performing Ensemble and Junior Performing Ensemble dance to the lively rhythm, ignite the stage, and touch your spirit.

Tickets : $35.00 per ticket

Venue : Moody Performance Hall, 2520 Flora Street, Dallas TX 75201
