The art of "stepping," is a dance form that combines elements of military drills with contemporary jazz and hip-hop moves. In stepping, the body takes the place of the drum: this consists of stomping the feet, clapping and slapping the hands against the heels, chest, thighs and other various parts of the body. This produces the complex rhythmic foundation for the dance step. In addition to this array of bodily percussion, stepping also features complex synchronized body movements, along with singing, chanting, and verbal play.
