Step Team

What is Stepping?

Stepping is a dance that uses the body as an instrument. It combines footsteps, claps, synchronized movements and spoken words to produce complex rhythms, and it has roots in African dance and military marching. 

As you learn how to step, remember to display confidence and trust not only in yourself but also in your step team.  Stepping requires teamwork, discipline and commitment.

Steppers typically use a hard wood stage with hard-soled shoes that send a sound into the atmosphere.
