Soul Steps was founded in 2005 by step artist Maxine Lyle in hopes of disseminating an awareness of step dance beyond a collegiate environment. Their mission is to expand the presence of stepping in the arts and entertainment industries while creating avenues for cultural exchange and awareness among diverse communities. Specializing in the live performance, artistic instruction, and educational outreach of African-based step dance, Soul Steps reaches far beyond conventional boundaries and concentrates on the body as a percussive, story-telling instrument. Performances include the personal and cultural stories of the Soul Steps artists and the generations of ancestors they represent.

Soul Steps: African-American Step Dancing Performance
Family Friendly Event
SOUL STEPS speaks the language of rhythm! For over a century, step dancers have used their bodies as musical instruments to create a new physical language that inspires, celebrates and forges community. SOUL STEPS brings this explosive African American art form to the stage in a high-energy performance where Afro-urban rhythms and personal narratives relay cultural stories and explore an artistic legacy. In an interactive, 60-minute performance, students are invited on stage to learn the dance, share in call and response interludes, and become participants in the celebration!
