Step It Up: Ithaca College students show off dance moves

Ithaca College students showed off their moves at Step Fest in Emerson Suites on Feb. 26. The event, hosted by IC Step Team, showcased the college’s talented dancers and paid tribute to the traditional form of African dance first practiced in the U.S. in the 1900s in historically black college fraternities and sororities. Dance groups such as IC Step Team, Pulse and Ground Up Crew performed traditional and alternative step dance rountines for the crowd.
