The Mu Omicron chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc. held the 24th annual Homecoming step show, where the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority and Iota Phi Theta fraternity took home the big wins.
Multiple sororities and fraternities participated in the festivities and the event was hosted by celebrity reality star and fashion designer Angela Simmons alongside VSU graduate and owner of Pressed Natural Hair Care Salon and a celebrity stylist in Atlanta, Nikk Nelson.
Simmons was noted posting a tweet that read, “Having such a great time hosting VSU step show!”
The night was full of surprises as J.L. Newbern Middle School, the Nu Mu Sigma step team, battled for champion as well.
The show seemed to be enjoyed by all in attendance. “This was the best step show I’ve seen,”Allie Williams, senior middle grades education major said. “It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.”
Every participating team was given one performance that was judged by a panel of nine step experts in the following categories: sharpness, creativity, overall theme and crowd reaction.
The annual step show raises funds for various programs provided by the Mu Omicron Chapter as well as the chapter’s fund Alpha Phi Alpha Memorial Scholarship.
This event was a family friendly skit, step performance that was enjoyed by the entire audience.
