Transcript show Building a tradition Step by Step he history of the step show dates back to the late '70's/early 80's where Black Greeks had experienced a lull in membership and wanted to create an avenue by which to show their Greek and African pride, raise funds for their organizations, and introduce the student community to what they had to offer. Stepping was derived from the tribal chants and rhythmic, synchronized tribal dances of Africa. In these choreographed rountines, each member stepped with vigor and confidence, adorned in the allegiant colors of their respective groups. Steps were composed of sequenced rhythms choreographed with hand claps, foot stomps, cane twirls and other movements that were linked with other patent steps to create a routine that encompasses dance, chants and occasionally skits. These steps recorded into a step log are revised, recycled, and combined into novel, unique steps. Step routines may take anywhere from a day to many months to formu late. Each organization designated a step team to represent their organization in a step show. "Practicing for step routines is very hard. Some step shows we've practiced for have cost us countless hours of hardwork and others we just put together in a week or two," said Ingrid Williams of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. "The complexity of the routine depends on the requirements of the show. Exhibition shows like the UH Arbor Jams and the Lynn Eusan Park Jam are not competitive. Step teams from various organizations who choose to participate do so solely to exhibit their ability and show Greek pride". Every year there are thousands of step shows held all over the country at various colleges and universities. Winners can expect to win anywhere from $100 to $5000 dollars. Here at the UH, for the past ten years, Pan Hellenic Greeks have held Arbor Jams and Park Jams to feature the talents of these prestigious organizations.
