SoulPhamm's Step Team
SoulPhamm's Step Program includes young ladies and gentlemen between the ages of 12 and 18. The team is based in New York City.
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 twelve steppers.
An application will be required and will be emailed or given to families on their first day. Non-refundable, weekly dues are $25 per participant and the team will participate in fundraisers for the organization's general overhead (which includes space rental, supplies, etc.). Dues are payable via CashApp ($SoulPhamm), Venmo (@soulphamm) or PayPal (email@example.com) only). Team members will be responsible for the purchase of their official team uniform (generally $100-$150).
Please note - if you are invited to a tryout and do not show up, or if you try to participate without paying you will be barred from registering from ALL SoulPhamm and affiliate programs in the future. If you do not pay your dues, you will be immediately cut from the team.
