Fraternities dance off at competition

By KeAndre Worthy

Fraternities and sororities got down in a stroll competition for a Halloween night of fun Thursday.

The strolling competition, also known as party walking, involved fraternity or sorority members doing a synchronized dance in front of judges and a crowd. The competition had a Twitter hashtag, #slbchildsplay, where the audience and performers could comment on the show and tweet pictures.

“I have been to two other competitions,” said Chutimun Glanboot, sophomore electrical engineering major. “They are a lot of fun so I am excited to watch people dance.”

The competition was presented by Sigma Lambda Beta fraternity, the members of which started the show with their own stroll. Two other fraternities — Chi Sigma Tau and Kappa Pi Beta — competed.

The show included two rounds in which the fraternities performed routines. There were also competitions — a costume contest, Stroll Like a Beta and a twerk competition — for audience members to take part in between rounds.

“I [was] excited to watch everyone perform,” said freshman communication major Kevin Mui. “I haven’t been to one before so it’s a new experience.”

Kappa Pi Beta was announced as the winner of the stroll competition by judges after both rounds at the end of the night.
