  1. Amazing performers whether as dancers or as drummers, and the first half was phenomenal. The second, however — not so much: the gum-boot piece was pretty lame, and the performance devolved into a kind of Las Vegas show-biz routine. The performers are too good for that, and I hope they reconsider how the evening might be constructed.

    Fabulous, and very impressive performance. The dancers were magnificent. It was difficult to sit for so long watching them, although I thought they did a good job getting a very sedentary (OK, a very white) audience participating from their seats. My only criticism was that the attempt to lighten the gumboot piece with humor failed for me, because I know about the suffering that went — and continues — to go on in such mines not only in South Africa, but across the world. In particular, the flirtation rankled because the reality of miner promiscuity with prostitutes around the mines meant mean their going home once or twice a month and bringing HIV with them…
    Thanks to Arts Emerson for bringing this to the gorgeous Majestic. And thanks to Step Afrika! for their magnificence.

    Wow! What a joyous performance. I had seen stepping by Alpha Phi Alpha and Omega Psi Phi fraternity brothers back when I was in college many years ago in the south, but never heard of it since. I remember how crowds of students used to gather around to watch, because it was exciting so see. What a terrific idea to bring it to the stage. Great to see women stepping too — times have changed! I enjoyed every single piece, and the explanations about the historic background enhanced the whole experience as well as providing a nice breather between routines. Many thanks to Arts Emerson for bringing them to Boston — hope they’ll be back again soon.

    Step Afrika was fabulous! I brought my grandaughter (10) and a friend and we all loved it! I especially appreciated learning about the history of step in this country. Who wouldn’t be wowed by the choreography, athleticism, and exuberance of the group!

    I and my grandson thought they were great and so hard working. We thoroughly enjoyed the show.
