Artist Bio

Soul Steps speaks the language of rhythm. Founded in 2005 by dancer/choreographer Maxine Lyle and based in NY/NJ, Soul Steps is dedicated to celebrating the African-American tradition known as “stepping.” They have toured all over the world, bringing step everywhere from Brooklyn to Kosovo. They have been featured on Good Day NY, CBS 2 News, Paris Fashion Week, and the Diesel Jeans viral video, “The A-Z of Dance.” Blending hip-hop rhythms, complex bodywork, and call and response, Soul Steps have been described in the New York Times as giving a performance that’s “electric and joyous.”
