Stepping Toward Success

This program will teach students the importance of stepping and strolling. Using their feet, hands, voice, and vocal clarity, students will make music to uplift and inspire the generation of tomorrow. Stepping originated in South Africa and was originally called Gumboot dancing. Strolling is a synchronized dance that uses unique motions that convey self-expression. Students that participate in this program will learn the importance of teamwork, unity, sisterhood/brotherhood, discipline, self-determination and camaraderie. This program requires a large space for a group of students (limit 15) to practice and perform. The area must allow the students to practice their voice projection, and play music.

6-8 sessions recommended.
