The Multicultural and Student Activities Programs will host a Black History Month Step Show on February 24th, 2017 in the UC Lobby from 6-8pm.

 

Stepping is something that needs to be experienced in order to be fully appreciated; the quick moves and split second changes showcase the talent, time and energy that each team puts into their choreography. Traditional Stepping has been around for generations and its influence can be seen throughout modern and popular dance as well as in popular films like “Stomp The Yard” and touring productions such as “Stomp”.

Black History Month Step Show Contest will be held on the last Friday in February to conclude our annual celebration of Black History Month!

Prizes will be awarded at the event
