Sports were not the only big thing going on this weekend. This past Saturday (2/4/12) was the date of the infamous annual Brew City Stomp Down. The event is one of the biggest step shows in the Mid-West. The show took place at Milwaukee’s historical Riverside Theater. It should be noted that this was the first year that the step show was not held on the Marquette Campus. The event was put together by Marquette University’s National Pan-Hellenic Council. The NPHC was established back in 1930 at Howard University as a permanent Greek organization. It is comprised of the following charters also known as the divine nine: Omega Psi Phi, Kappa Alpha Psi, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, Alpha Phi Alpha, Phi Beta Sigma, Sigma Gamma Rho, and Iota Phi Theta. The purpose of the Marquette branch of the NPHC is to promote unity, leadership, and community. The purpose of the Brew City Stomp Down is to allow Sororities and Fraternities the opportunity to express themselves creatively. Also, it provides a positive quality social experience for the community that includes scholarship opportunities for college students. And it allows the NPHC to act on their belief in unity. This year’s step show event was hosted by none other than television personality and female rapper Free (formerly of BET’s 106 & Park). The music was provided by local Milwaukee deejay, DJ Poizon Ivy. And sponsors for the event included: INROADS, City Year, V100.7, and State Farm.
