Step Show Competition Coming to Nova Southeastern University

Universities from across Florida to compete in “Brown & White Jump Off”

FT. LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity Inc. at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is holding a step, stroll and salute competition on Oct. 17 at 6:30 p.m. at the University Center Arena on NSU’s main campus in Davie (3301 College Ave.).

Titled the Brown & White Jump Off, the show will feature fraternities and sororities from across Florida competing for $1,000 in prize money. Step teams from the University of Miami, University of Florida, Florida State University, Florida International University, Florida Atlantic University, University of South Florida, University of Central Florida, Barry University and NSU will compete. Last year’s inaugural Brown & White Jump Off drew more than 600 people.

Tickets for the event are $5 and will be available for purchase at the door the night of the show. Tickets can also be purchased in advance by contacting Lambda Theta Phi at rdelaros@nova.edu or bermeo@nova.edu. NSU students will be admitted free.

Stepping is a form of dance that has been traditionally practiced by historically African-American fraternities and sororities. It involves teams of dancers using their bodies to create complex rhythms through a mixture of footsteps, spoken word and hand claps. Stepping has grown in popularity and has been featured in recent films such as Drumline and Stomp the Yard.
