Step Afrika! presented by the Delaware Art Museum Recommended for Grades 5 - 12  The Grand joins in an innovative collaboration with Delaware Art Museum to present Step Afrika! – a unique dance company that promotes stepping as an educational tool for young people and performs globally as a cultural ambassador. This signature work, based on Jacob Lawrence’s iconic painting series, charts the story of African-American migrants moving from the south to the north in the early 1900s. Each piece uses the images, color palette and motifs of the paintings to tell the migration story through body percussion and dance. Performances are much more than dance shows; they integrate songs, storytelling, humor, and audience participation.  Curriculum Connections: Literature, Art, African-American History, Civil Rights, Literacy Skills, Music/Dance/Culture For school reservations, please download a reservation form, email Discovery@grandopera.org, or call (302)658-7897 ext. 3201.
