COMPETITIVE STEP TEAM
The SOULDEEVAS Step Team is a competitive organization for girls in New York City and New Jersey. A partner boys' team (under a different organization/name is being developed) in New York and a team is being developed in South Amboy, New Jersey in mid-2021.
The SoulDeevas Steppers will train to compete in national competitions and will also participate in step shows and competitions, field shows, parades, talent shows and other venues.
Stepping is a form of percussive dance in which the team's participants use their bodies as instruments to produce complex rhythms and sounds through a mixture of footsteps, spoken word, and hand claps. The art was made most popular in Black Greek Lettered Organizations, but has also found popularity in elementary and secondary schools across the country.
The SoulDeevas' team is built on a rich legacy of stepping - with its history beginning with the 1City Youth Project of Brooklyn, New York, which hosted award winning high-school teams for 20 years.
SoulDeevas Step is a rigorous program that blends high expectations, academic achievement, good sportsmanship, etiquette, health and wellness, comradery and community service with faith, fun and fellowship! We teach our ladies to project and accept no less than their absolute best! Though not a "religious" team, we believe in positive affirmations as an integral part of our program and our coaches pray over our teams before every event.
Parents will be responsible for uniform purchase from the team's approved vendor. The group will fund raise to purchase additional items as needed.
Please register to be kept informed about future auditions, and please stay tuned for added content as we grow.
