Step Afrika!’s Magical Musical Holiday Step Show
Step Afrika!’s Magical Musical Holiday Step Show is the most vibrant holiday celebration in town! This fun, family-friendly performance will have you stomping your feet and clapping your hands to energetic beats from Step Afrika! and special guest, DJ Frosty the Snowman. Over the last six years, this internationally-renowned percussive dance company has created a contemporary holiday tradition at the Atlas, featuring friendly, furry characters, pre-show instrument-making workshops, photo ops, and even a dance party. Why celebrate the holidays sitting still when you can step with Step Afrika!
Step Afrika!’s Magical Musical Holiday Step Show is suited to adults and kids age four and up. Join us in the lobby 30 minutes before show time to decorate your own musical instrument so you can make music with Step Afrika! during the performance.
Praise from past audience members:
“These steppers are amazingly talented and this show is definitely a fun way to celebrate the holiday season. You’ll learn a new dance called the ‘Frosty Shuffle’ and I’ll definitely be whipping out those dance moves next time I go out. :)”
“Oh my, this was a great show!! Was interactive with the audience and even had the audience participate in the DJ Frosty Jam. Prior to the show we had an opportunity to make a drum, rattle or shaker, too!! I LOVED the show. Just wish it was even longer. This will become a new holiday tradition!!!”
“Excellent performance, I enjoyed it very much. The grandkids loved it.The audience thought they were part of Step Afrika!’s group when they got up to dance. The girls are age 7 and 8, they danced all night.”
