Last Friday night, the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) unveiled its fourth annual Homecoming Step Show to a sold-out Ferst Center crowd. Members of eight historically black fraternities and sororities on campus competed in the rhythmic talent competition.
The judges revealed that the winners of the competition this year were both the men of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. and the ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. after the students finished their performances.
The men of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. were the first to take the stage, kicking off the show with a jailbreak routine. The ladies of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. performed next, with a salon theme, and the men of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. followed with a Harry Potter-themed act. The ladies of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. then used a cowgirl theme to demonstrate how the West was conquered.
“We wanted our theme to represent our personality, entertain the audience, and be exclusive, while also developing unique and challenging steps for our organization…
Khrystyan Edens, a fourth-year CHBE major and member of the Xi Alpha chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., said, “It took a lot of practice to make sure everyone was precise and every movement was performed the same way.”
2018 homecoming step show: kappa alpha psi fraternity
On Saturday, Stephens College Delta Sigma Theta junior Karry Parran holds up the Delta sign during the National Pan-Hellenic Council Step Show at Plaza 900 Amphitheater. NPHC sorority and fraternity members played for a large crowd at the show.
The Legion of Black Collegians put on a step display outside Plaza 900 on Saturday, despite the storm. Sororities and fraternities of the National Pan-Hellenic Council performed step routines that were special to each chapter.
“The bulk of the step show is made up of NPHC Greek organizations,” said Charles Ukatu, NPHC President and Kappa Alpha Psi member. “Some of the local dance groups are also invited to participate. We want to make it available to everyone. We’re considering inviting the (Interfraternity Council) next year.”
Omega Psi Phi member Geordan Lightfoot-Smith explained, “Omega Psi Phi refers to stepping as hopping, and it’s meant to demonstrate unity and bonding among the organizations.” “We wanted to show off our passion and hard work for Omega Psi Phi.”

Step by step – extended opening credits
Howard Homecoming is associated with D.C., and one of the city’s greatest celebrations of Black greek life is, of course, its annual step demonstration, in which members of Howard’s National Panhellenic Council demonstrate their step choreography.
On Friday evening, Burr Gymnasium was filled with spectators to see two sororities and two fraternities meet. Local high school steppers, such as the popular Theodore Roosevelt High School Step Team Dem Raider Boyz, performed as part of the show, which was hosted by Angela Simmons and King Flexxa (who have been featured on the World of Dance show with J Lo and Ne-Yo.).
Not only did the pull of Greek life and the elegance of step fill the night with nostalgia and excitement. The theme, Channel 67: The Golden Era of Television, had the audience reminiscing about the good old days as steppers choreographed their routines around our favorite shows like Family Matters, Rugrats, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Sister, Sister.
Just one sorority and one fraternity earned first place prizes of $2,500 from Chase Bank in the end. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority took first place in the sorority category, with their theme Sister, Sister, while Alpha Phi Alpha took first place in the fraternity category.
