Footworks Percussive Dance commemorates The Star Spangled Banner’s 200th anniversary with “Steps & Stripes” at a Maryland Hall performance on Friday, March 8 at 8 pm. Tickets are $25; $20 for children and Maryland Hall members.
“Steps & Stripes,” which includes many guest artists and outstanding musicians, celebrates the multicultural history of Baltimore. Combining Irish music and dance with African music and dance, the show illuminates how these diverse cultures met and led to some of the beautiful and uniquely American music and dance we see today. Footworks uses clogging and tap, along with modern and hip-hop dance, to create a visual timeline of Baltimore’s history.
