On June 28, Step Afrika!, in collaboration with the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (BACA) and the U.S. Embassy in Bahrain, performed in front of a full house at the Cultural Hall.  The artists thrilled the audience with Step dance incorporating African folkloric dance movements and songs. Ambassador Justin H. Siberell attended the opening and thanked the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities  (BACA) for inviting Step Afrika! to be part of the 2019 Bahrain Summer Festival.

On June 27, Step Afrika! did a 20-minute mini performance at the official inauguration of the Bahrain Summer Festival, which was attended by BACA President Shaikha Mai bint Mohammed Al Khalifa and VIP guests.  The artists also conducted an energizing dance workshop for young children at the Nakhool Tent.
