Well, the show was last night, and it went pretty well, I must say. Here is a recap of the evening. Sorry if the pics are a bit dark, blame it on the lighting of the venue.
The show was held at Gaston Hall, Georgetown University, which is a pretty decent venue to have a medium sized show. Seats 700 comfortable, and I'd say about 500 people were there. There were two other shows going on in the DC area that night, one at University of Maryland - College Park, and one in Baltimore County.
So the show started late -- of course. But that was mostly because the DJ strolled in when he felt like it. (Or so it seemed.)
So then the show started, and there I was, informing the audience that "I DON'T DO JOKES."
I did the roll call, and there were no Ques, Sigmas, SGRhos, or Iotas in the audience. However, everyone else was there, including LUL, Lambda Pi Chi, and Sigma Lambda Upsilon. Also there was Phi Sigma Sigma. When I gave them their shoutout, I think they either said "O-KAY!" or "WHAT!" but I can't remember which. They were nice girls.
So, the first group was APO.
They were deep than a mug last night. The performance was nice, kinda old school in its execution, which was a good thing for me. I don't like a bunch of extras....just give me some good, solid stepping, chanting, and singing. They delivered.
Next was Sigma Lambda Upsilon, which has a chapter down the street at GW.
As most Latina sororities I have seen perform, they were hardcore. Very good, solid stepping. And they were very friendly, too.
Then there was the Kappas.
As much as it pains me to admit it (lol) they were really good. Like, they were GREAT.
Then came the Zetas, from Beta Zeta Chapter, a grad chapter in DC. They get bonus points for being the only team other than GUST to actually use the theme of the show in their routine.
They were good.
And then came the Alphas.
They performed some familiar, crowd-pleasing steps. It was nice to see them return to this show, since their chapter always supported it before the show's two year hiatus.
And finally, the Georgetown University Step Team.
The first part of their routine, which you couldn't really hear, was a skit based on the founding of the team. Although the team had more than five founders, it was really accurate and representative of what we did to establish the team. (I was one of the founders.
