Students Step Up for Community’s Entertainment
February 25, 2010
Back by popular demand and in honor of Black History Month, the Black Student Union (BSU) at and the SUU Student Association are sponsoring SUU’s sixth annual step show: Steppin’ Up.
After a two year hiatus, the campus and local communities will again have the opportunity to enjoy this popular event this Friday, February 26, at 7 p.m. in the SUU Auditorium.
According to Jensine Jamison, president of the BSU, the step show has received very positive feedback in years past, with packed audiences and rave reviews. Jamison and her peers are pleased the BSU could once again bring this event to campus.
Said Jamison, “This is something different and diverse that audiences normally wouldn’t get in Cedar City, and we encourage everyone to come out and enjoy the performances as they have in former years.”
For those not yet familiar with this increasingly popular style of dance, step is a general term for dance where the footwork is the most important part of the dance.
In addition to showcasing the talent of campus groups, the Steppin’ Up production involves a variety of step performing groups from Las Vegas.
Tickets to this one-night-only performance are available at the door and are $2 for students with their student card and $5 for adults. Children under 5 are free.
Following the performance in the Auditorium, the group will host an after party that is open to all in the Ballroom of the Sharwan Smith Student Center.
