Claflin University held its fifth annual dorm step show.
Four teams competed for the title with Highrise dormitory coming in first place.
The hosts for the show were Ms. Homecoming LaQueena Williams and Mr. 1913 Nicholas Ballard.
The show was opened by high school step teams Les Charms Clue (LLC) and High Light Society (HLN). Both teams are from Orangburg-Wilkinson High School.
The first team to go was freshman dorm Corson Hall. They stepped as robots called the Corson Roses.
Asbury Hall was the second all-freshman team to go. They opened up with an inspirational monologue and were dressed as activist group the Black Panthers.
Next was mixed dorm of all classes Kleist Hall. Their theme was "Queens in Training.” They wore all black with gold-sparked boots.
The winners of the step show were an all-male dorm, Highrise. They claimed the title with a ninja theme. They were clearly a crowd favorite, receiving a standing ovation throughout the performance.
The Highrise step team won a cash prize of $300.
