ABOUT THE STEP SHOW

The City of Knoxville Parks & Recreation staff began the Teen Step Show to encourage fitness and friendly competition as well as to give students a glimpse of what to expect as a college student.  The step show is judged by members of local college fraternities and sororities.

Current members of prominent African-American fraternities and sororities also commit time to support the event. The "Divine 9" organizations, Alpha Phi Alpha, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, Delta Sigma Theta, Phi Beta Sigma, Zeta Phi Beta, Sigma Gamma Rho, and Iota Phi Theta, work through their partnership to send the competitors a message of team camaraderie, service, and ingenuity.
