Stepping in its modern form draws from African, African-American and Caribbean traditional moves and group dances. Often attributed to a way of unspoken communication in diasporic communities, it most notably evolved into a celebratory practice choreographed by Pan-Hellenic greek organizations.
From college campuses nationwide, stepping was used as a way for fraternities and sororities to show solidarity, and quite frankly, show off their synchronized dance skills.
Now, greek organizations and drill teams have embraced the dance form, which can be seen in the new movie Step. Below, see fantastic photos of stepping from greek organizations through the years.
