- Choreography 101: Team/group session that applies the tools learned in Art of Stepping 101 to create original routines with other participants. Participants will also learn how to express themselves through Art of Stepping’s signature Worldwide Day of Play routine.
Upon completion of the workshop, each participant will perform their custom routine with their group and receive an AOS certification from Art of Stepping.
In September 2013, Art of Stepping partnered with Nickelodeon to celebrate the network’s 10th annual Worldwide Day of Play. As part of the week-long schedule of events leading up to the signature event in Brooklyn, New York’s Prospect Park, AOS coordinated activities in six states, providing free stepping workshops and classes to help promote wellness among children.
Art of Stepping, in 2011, partnered with former NBA star point-guard Chris Duhon’s Stand Tall Foundation to launch the Sneakers 2 Succeed (S2S) campaign. The campaign’s goal is to collect gently used and/or new sneakers to donate to various local charities. This year, AOS expanded the campaign by offering their award winning step program that teaches the art form via mathematical formulas for free.
