During Sing Song there were performances from social clubs and host and hostesses, including the two-stepping group. The two-stepping group that performed during Sing Song plans to start a club.
Alan Songer, sophomore from Tomball, is in contact with Mark Jackson about starting an official two-stepping club on campus.
“I have wanted to start a two-stepping club since my freshmen year, but since I am currently in Dallas with ACU City Square, I was not able to,” Songer said. “I fully intend to start up the club at the beginning of next semester.”
The two-stepping group was chosen for Sing Song by Sing Song choreographer, Teri Wilkerson, through an audition process.
“It was a blast. It ended up being a lot of hard work, bruises and sore muscles leading up to the actual shows, but we had a ton of fun,” Songer said. “I could not have asked for a better group of dancers, and was truly blessed by both their talent and their personalities.”
Songer heard about the two-stepping group last year which lead both him and his partner, Kate Steltzlen, to get involved. Steltzlen, sophomore from The Woodlands, has been two-stepping for about a year.
“I met Alan at Guitars last year and I wanted him to teach me everything he knew and it turned out that we were good at dancing together,” Stetlzlen said.
Abilene introduced two-stepping to Songer, and it wasn’t until his freshmen year that he began to get involved with the dance. He wants to pass on his knowledge by starting a club dedicated to two-stepping.
“I just want there to be a place where people who enjoy country dancing can come together and learn from each other,” Songer said. “Another big reason I want to start the club is to teach people who are new to two-stepping. I want a group of people who love two-stepping, and are available to teach anyone on campus who is also interested.”
If you are a two-stepper be on the look out next semester for a club that you can step right into.
