Teams from several black fraternities and sororities will compete for a $1,000 prize at a step show contest 9 p.m. today at the Williams Center for the Arts.

Admission is free with Lafayette ID and $5 for the public. An “after party” with DJ Baby J for those 18 years and older will take place until 2:30 p.m.; admission for the step show and party costs $8.

To help demonstrate the origins of step, a student will perform the “gum boot” dance that originated in Ghana. The contest will begin with two sororities from Temple University. A group from Whitehall High School that won the fall step contest hosted by Lafayette will then perform an exhibition. Three fraternities will follow, including Kappa Alpha Psi from Lehigh University, Alpha Phi Alpha from Temple University, and a Latino fratermity, Lambda Sigma Upsilon. After Guest Marc Wilson gives a tribute to the original black Greek organizations, the judges will announce the winners.
