Annual Step Show kicks off 2015 Homecoming Week activities at Arkansas State

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Greek students on the A-State campus heralded the start of homecoming week with the annual Step Show at the ASU Convocation Center Monday night.

Homecoming Heroes was the theme.

Students prepared skits and dance step routines centered around superheroes for the hour-long competition.

Precision stepping into formations, clapping, dancing and gymnastics stunts energized crowds of students, parents and faculty gathered for the event that begins with students running to find a spot to sit in a section of the crowd supporting their chosen Greek organization. 

Costumes decked out with capes and even a “vandal” representing the opposing team made their debut across the court.

The Alpha Gamma Delta sorority was named the winner of the competition.
