Made in Hayward Step Off


Spearheaded by HUSD and the Youth Enrichment Program (YEP) the “MIH Step Off” is an opportunity for students of all ages to display the artistic skills of stepping in a citywide competition which takes place in May. This is the largest attended Made in Hayward event of the school year.


YEP (HUSD’s afterschool program) hires teachers at the secondary level (middle and high school) if requested. Practice and participation at the middle and high school level are determined by the school. Elementary sites recruit their own step coaches and therefore vary site by site.


Stepping or step-dancing is a form of percussive dance in which the participant’s entire body is used as an instrument to produce complex rhythms and sound through a mixture of footsteps, spoken word, and hand claps. Though stepping may be performed by an individual, it is generally performed by groups of three or more, often in arrangements that resemble military formations. The tradition of stepping is rooted within the competitive schoolyard song and dance rituals practiced by historically African American fraternities and sororities, beginning in the mid-1900s


This event is open to the public with an Entrance fee.
