Wave Hill is a museum without walls with a living collection of more than 4,000 varieties of trees, shrubs, vines, and herbaceous plants. It is the only public garden in the New York metropolitan area practicing a unique combination of classic horticultural craftsmanship and daring design.

COVID Guidelines

Here you will find a multitude of linked gardens, distinct from one another and intimate, as well as wide-open stretches of land. Frequently described as an urban oasis, Wave Hill comes as an enchanting surprise. The 28-acre site itself is stunning—high above the Hudson River with sweeping views and lots of open sky.

Wave Hill’s 28-acre site includes gardens, greenhouses and an 8-acre woodland. As you explore Wave Hill, please remember that it is a carefully cultivated garden, which is very different from a park. Our tips and guidelines help you navigate our expansive grounds and protect our living collection. Please be respectful of all that grows here and have a wonderful time exploring.

Based on 25 years of Step Afrika!’s award-winning arts education programs, the Company has created a 5-part experience for grades K-12 that will introduce students to the history and tradition of stepping. Step Afrika! is the world’s first professional company dedicated to the tradition of stepping—a polyrhythmic, percussive dance form that uses the body as an instrument.

Event Link

REGISTER NOW

Day One: Teachers will receive an introductory video to the History of Stepping, entitled “What is Stepping?” Step Afrika!’s educational guide will be made available to all instructors who wish to use the program.

Day Two: Stepping with Step Afrika! This tutorial will be a fun, interactive way for students to learn the tradition of stepping in 10 minutes of less. Led by Step Afrika! instructors and based on Step Afrika!’s exhibit at the Smithsonian’s national Museum of African-American History & Culture in Washington, DC, this video will get students moving versus sitting still in front of computer screens.

Day Three: The Performance, Act 1. The standard Step Afrika! performance for young students is 50-55 minutes. Step Afrika! will break the performance up into two acts of no more than 20 minutes per viewing for easy use in the classroom setting.

Day Four: The Performance, Act 2.

Day Five: Meet the Artists of Step Afrika!: a pre-recorded Q & A for students. Step Afrika! artists stress four important concepts: teamwork, discipline, commitment and academic achievement. This session will allow students to connect personally with the artists and learn more about their lives as students and dancers across the globe.
