Divine Step Team
Stepping is a dance tradition that is a complex performance involving synchronized percussive movement, singing, speaking, chanting, and drama. It can be traced to the peoples and cultural dance traditions of Africa, specifically, the "Gumboot Dance".  With a focus on precise foot movements and hand-clapping, gumboots use3d dance as a means to communicate.  Stepping in the U.S. can be traced as far back as the 1920s with fraternity pledges at Howard University.  As stepping evolved into the 1940s and 50s, various elements of military drill formations became prevalent, partially due to the fact that many military men joined fraternities upon returning from WWII.  Step shows became the format of choice to display pride in ones organization and is now produced in many African-American churches, schools, community groups, fraternities, and sororities, as well as Latino, Asian-American, and multicultural Greek-letter organizations.
