Black fraternities and sororities from the DMV area came to George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium on Friday night to showcase their skills during the National Pan-Hellenic Council’s (NPHC) second annual step show.

Members of black Greek organizations celebrated the art and history of stepping at this concluding event for GW’s Black Heritage Celebration. Many wore costumes reminiscent of children’s TV shows such as “The Proud Family” and “Codename Kids Next Door.”

Partial proceeds from Friday’s show went to 2-year-old leukemia survivor Kristian Thomas, who the NPHC at GW adopted through the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation.

Take a look at some photos from the step show:
