The girls who participate in Cotswold’s Mentoring Program run by PTA volunteers had the special treat to go uptown last month to Imaginon and see the audience favorite, Step Afrika! Step Afrika! is the world’s first professional company dedicated to stepping, an art form born from African-American fraternities and based in African traditions. The dancers use their bodies as instruments to perform their intricate kicks, stomps and rhythms mixed with spoken word.
The girls loved the show and even got to meet three of the performers and hear from the director of curriculum at The Children’s Theatre of Charlotte. They enjoyed spending time together and had fun with a pizza lunch. Thank you to Children’s Theatre and Brixx Pizza for your ticket and pizza donations, which made this day possible.
