SoulPhamm's Step Team
Stepping is a form of percussive dance in which the team's participants use their bodies as instruments to produce complex rhythms and sounds through a mixture of footsteps, spoken word, and hand claps. The art was made most popular in Black Greek Lettered Organizations, but has also found popularity in elementary and secondary schools across the country.
The team will be trained to compete on local, regional and national courts. In addition to learning traditional step, they will also learn about the history of stepping, social etiquette and sportsmanship and how pursuit of excellence will help their higher educational pursuits and open up opportunities for long-term careers.
The team requires discipline and a willingness to learn and adapt. It will demand the utmost in respect from the steppers, coaches and staff alike. The team will be asked to do things that their peer organizations might not do (no cursing; strict rules around decorum, attendance and punctuality; fitness routine) and it should be understood that they must confirm to all of our rules in order to participate.
Slots on the team are secured via tryouts and the team is beginner friendly. The roster is generally comprised of five to ten steppers.
ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY ARE STRICT. This is NOT a drop-in program. If you cannot commit to attending practices every week (exceptions are made for sickness, family concerns and school events), on time, this is not the program for you.
