Learn a highly energetic and rhythmic form of body percussion.
STU Arts Dance is the only dance organization in Belgium to offer Stepping classes, workshops and performances. Created in the early 1900's at Historically Black College's and Universities, Stepping is an African-American form of body percussion that utilizes the body as an instrument to create intricate rhythms and sounds with ones’ hands, feet and voice. This rich art form is the heart of our founder, Briana Ashley Stuart's research in movement and sound:
