The Palace Theatre is Proud to welcome the 2014 Price Chopper Black History Celebration Step Show!
The Annual Step Show has proven to be a valuable centerpiece to a month long celebration of African American Culture in the Capital Region. It brings the community together for one night to show support for their friends, family and neighbors while enjoying an evening filled with high energy step performances. The 2014 Step Show will feature teams from SUNY Albany, Siena and St. Rose as well as other Upstate New York schools and some of the best Step Teams from outside the area!
Stepping is truly something that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated, the quick moves and split second changes showcase just how much time and energy is put into the choreography. Beyond its entertainment value, the event is also highly educational as it relates to the concepts and themes of identity, culture, environment and society and their role in why these organizations came about and why they still exist today. The entertainment grabs your attention and draws you into wanting to learn more about these organizations and their history. This program and others like it offer participants not only a creative outlet, but also a chance to be a part of something bigger than themselves. The Palace Theatre is proud to be the home for this event!
