For generations, African-American college students across the United States have performed in a high energy dance competition that dates back to the days of slavery and before that, their roots in Africa. It's called 'step dancing' of simply 'steppin' '. There's no music but what they create with their hands, feet and voices. Black fraternity and sorority members rehearse hours each day for weeks prior to the competition. In Springfield, Missouri, at what is now Missouri State University, step dancers got their acts together for a contest with a first prize of $1,000. This story follows their rehearsals and performances on the final two days of competition.
By Ed Fillmer, producer and photographer.
