MTSU fraternities, sororities are ‘Stepping for a Cure’ Feb. 13

The fastest feet in fraternities and sororities will be “Stepping for a Cure” at MTSU Friday, Feb. 13.

The Interfraternity Council and the Panhellenic Council will sponsor a step show slated for 7 to 9:30 p.m. Feb. 13 at MTSU’s Tucker Theatre. A printable parking map is available at

Admission is $10 in advance or $15 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the box office on the evening of the show. Advance tickets may be purchased at ; click on “Get Tickets” on the left side of the page.

Part of the proceeds will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis to combat childhood cancer.

Alpha Chi Omega, Chi Omega, Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Tau Omega and Zeta Tau Alpha will create and perform intricate choreography in competition for first, second, third and fan favorite trophies.

The audience will determine the fan favorite award.

“It’s not just for people to watch,” said Jordan Parker, a member of Phi Beta Sigma and organizer of the event. “It’s also for people to socialize and interact with one another.”

Teams of 15 to 26 people each are responsible for their own props and costumes. Lighting and audio services will be provided by Tucker Theatre in conjunction with the teams.

Parker says the teams will be judged on synchronicity, themes and how well they adhere to the 13-minute time limit. Penalties will be assessed for exceeding the time limit.

“It’s a really fun, lighthearted show,” Parker said. “Just to come and see people step is very interesting.”
