Sankofa, the Williams College Step Team, continues to expand on the legacy of Step, a percussive dance form, through exploration of the body as an instrument. Fresh ideas are brought to the stage every year. This year the spring concert will be shared with Levitt Fellow Shakia Johnson. Shakia has worked with Sankofa and other dancers this semester to create a Hip Hop production with the intention of generating understanding and appreciation of a culture that is many times appropriated and misunderstood. This show combines dance, research and discussion to present the influence of Hip Hop music, fashion, language, media and personal style throughout the ages.
