Steppin’ it Up

Step Show this year, like always, left the crowd roaring with applause. The themes were extremely imaginative and well thought out. Prisoners to old men, Wonder Woman and fire fighters, all of the performances were top-notch material.

The fraternities that competed this year were Phi Gamma Delta and Alpha Tau Omega.

The sororities that competed were Phi Mu, Alpha Delta Pi, Zeta Tau Alpha and Alpha Gamma Delta. The co-ed Honors Student Organization also competed for the first time.

Alpha Tau Omega and Phi Mu were this year’s winners. Alpha Tau Omega donned firefighter outfits and incorporated many aspects of their costumes and music to match its theme in a way that some of the others just did not quite compare. At one point, just before exiting the stage, the performers all did a “stop, drop and roll” where other members ran and jumped over those on the ground.

I think that may have been the selling point, or it could have just been the way Sam Satterfield looked in his red suspenders.

Phi Mu took the cake this year but had some solid competition. The ladies dolled up and decked out in circus attire and props, but they also executed their steps with such precision and accuracy that when it came time to judge the winners, they had an advantage over the competition.

I am certainly glad I did not have to judge the show, because I would have had to draw from a hat.

Ultimately, Step Show not only pulled the community together but provided a night of fun and entertainment for all involved.
