Part 1 The Genesis It began with singing Brothers would gather in the quad and sing They eventually graduated to dancing and from there stepping You can go to some yards down south and they call it a Sing instead of a Step-show The WHITE FRATERNITIES started the singing part but the black fraternities took it to another level Much like we did with basketball and football I dont think that any one fraternity can lay claim to stepping more than likely it evolved One thing I do know was that the Omegas and the Sigmas were the first to do it Sororities didnt start stepping until several years after the fraternities SOURCE Brother Terrence AB Lewis BadStep Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc Part 2 The Evolution Stepping began with groups of guys singing acappella and when groups like the Temptations and the Four Tops were popular in the 50s and 60s brothers started mimicking their steps This was how stepping evolved This is why it is called Stepping now Brothers would try to come up with the best steps while they were singing to please the ladies If you got the ladies yougot more recruits Much like it is today Others say that stepping replaced the doo woop sounds and cardigan sweaters of the 50s At around the same time as the Black Power Movements and Africa centered movements of the 60s stepping started to flourish with the incorporation of some traditional African ritual dancing and the incorporation of other elements like cheer leading tap gymnastics etc Over the years stepping has become very intricate and demanding incorporating props high levels of gymnastics and other elements found in team sports Please note that some people want to give the credit to the South African Boot Dance but it would beunfair to ignore everything that stepping was in the beginning and it is now
