Calendar Pick: The League of Step’s 2nd Annual Step Resurgence

The League of Step is hosting its second annual Step Resurgence, a step competition drawing teams from across the nation to compete for $2,000 worth of prizes, trophies and bragging rights. The League of Step is a stepping school that uses the art form to inspire discipline, confidence and self-esteem. Started in part by local hip-hop artist Squallé, the league encourages academic, mental and physical excellence through tutoring programs and other forms of support through mentorships. This year’s Step Resurgence features 25 teams of all age groups, traveling from places like Tallahassee, Raleigh, Richmond and St. Louis. Teams from Atlanta and Athens will also compete. The night will finish off with a coach’s step-off to crown the ultimate champion.
