NWU Plans Annual Step Show Competition

Nebraska Wesleyan University will host its eighth annual award-winning step show competition on Saturday, November 19.

This year’s step show theme is “A Step Back Into The Past: Honoring the Historical Traditions of African American and Latino Fraternities and Sororities.” The show will feature college and high school step teams who will compete for over $2,000 in cash prizes.

Comedian Drew Thomas of “Last Comic Standing” will emcee the event; NWU alum Spencer Munson will be the evening’s D.J. Nebraska Wesleyan’s hip hop dance and step team, X-Clusive, will perform an exhibition routine as a tribute to those who brought stepping to the mainland from Africa.

The competition begins at 7 p.m. in O’Donnell Auditorium, located at 50th Street and Huntington Ave. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

General admission is $10 for adults, $7 for Greek members who wear Greek apparel, and $5 for children under 12 years. Tickets will be available at the door. The event is free for NWU faculty, staff and students with issued tickets, which will be available for pick up at the Center for Student Involvement beginning Monday, November 14.
