Kappa Alpha Psi to Host Baylor's Second Annual Step Show

Feb. 4, 1998

Baylor University's Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity will host its second annual step show at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 7, in Waco Hall. The show, titled "Epic Odyssey," will feature stepping performances by fraternities and sororities from throughout Texas.

Students from eight Texas schools representing 12 fraternity and sorority chapters will perform their routines. The performances are divided into fraternity and sorority categories and a first, second and third place prize is given in each category. Prize money for the event totals more than $4,500.

Last year's performance sold out Waco Hall and according to Christopher Haynes, a junior from Fort Worth and Kappa Alpha Psi president, this year's performance also is expected to sell out. The show ends the fraternity's annual "Kappa Week," honoring its founders and Black Heritage Week.

Stepping is a tradition for African American fraternities and sororities and involves a dance routine that incorporates stomps, jazz and tap dance. Performances are judged on group unity, theme and overall entertainment value.

Tickets for the show are available in the ticket office of the Bill Daniel Student Center for $10 in advance. They will be sold at the door for $12. For more information, contact the Baylor Department of Student Activities at 710-2371.
