Sigma Gamma Rho Steps It Up
November 23, 2010
On Wednesday, November 10, Sigma Gamma Rho (SGRho) showed their true colors. Performing a step routine, the sisters proclaimed, “I bleed blue and gold!”
The step show gave the sisters a chance to show their school spirit, as they competed in a step-off against SGRhos from the University of Central Florida (UCF). Organized as a spoof of the MTV show Wild ‘N Out, the step show allowed both teams to perform routines, trying to one-up each other.
While the sisters competed, the crowd helped fuel the competition and feed the excitement. Brothers from Alpha Phi Alpha at UCF came to show their support, as did a large contingent of fellow Tars, including sorority and fraternity members and staff members from the Offices of Student Involvement and Leadership (OSIL) and Multicultural Affairs (OMA).
After competing against each other, the announcer decided that the schools should work together and perform a Unity Step—blindfolded. The sight-impaired sisters danced with canes, beating them on the floor and swinging them over each other’s heads, showcasing the skill and practice involved in such a daring routine.
As the show came to a close, the music was turned up and SGRhos danced around the Bush Auditorium, inviting the audience to join in on the fun.
Be on the lookout for the next show in the spring semester!
