A Blu Sweep!

After the two Non-Panhellenic Council organizations performed, next up was the sororities. First to perform was the devastating divas of Delta Sigma Theta. The divas came out in red sailor outfits, all sitting in a makeshift boat, trying to rescue a captured soror. The Deltas displayed a generous array of preciseness and stamina during their performance.Following the Deltas were the dovely ladies of Zeta Phi Beta. “The theme behind our performance was ‘Candy Shop.’ We wanted to do something fun to entertain the crowd,” said member Natalie Carr. The ladies moved distinctively and precisely while all on one accord while stepping on the stage.

After the sororities performed and a brief intermission, it was time for the fraternities to showcase their stepping skills. First on the stage were the Ice Cold men of Alpha Phi Alpha who came out in an all-black attire with white gloves and Jabbawockee-like masks. “The story behind the theme was a lady (played by Miss Black and Gold Qwanelia Williams) reminiscing about her first encounter with an Alpha man,” said member Alonzo Blalock. The men of black and old gold kept the audience appealed with their signature Tut-like moves and Alpha train.

Following the Alphas were the blue and white men of Phi Beta Sigma, who wasted no time winning the crowd over when member Jeremy Mims potrayed rapper-turned-singer T-Pain, walked on stage. “I’ve been told I resemble the entertainer, so it only made sense to have a performance highlighting his pieces of works and to entitle the performance ‘A Circus Theme’, said Mims.

After the Sigmas, it was time for the oh so pretty boys of Kappa Alpha Psi to take the stage. “The inspiration of the performance was overcoming an obstacle. It seems as if you’ve been away at war, which is why the steppers wore dress blue uniforms,” said member Aaron Johnson. “The diamonds/jewelry display was a mere play on words about other organizations being a cheap imitation selection of jewels versus an expensive diamond,” added Johnson. The pretty boys kept the ladies screaming with their signature shimmy moves and cane twirling.

The final performance was by the men of Omega Psi Ph whose theme was entitled “Men in Black.” The Ques attire consisted of black suits, purple ties, sunglasses, and of course, gold boots. After showing everyone why they should come in first place, the Omegas placed collars around their necks and did a brief step to the infamous song “I’m A Dog” by rapper Gucci Mane. Following their steps, the Ques strolled off the stage to their legendary signature song “Atomic Dog.”

The winners of the stepshow are as follows: Sororities- First Place: Zeta Phi Beta, Second Place- Delta Sigma Theta. Fraternities- First Place- Phi Beta Sigma, Second Place- Kappa Alpha Psi, Third Place- Omega Psi Phi.
