Step Sing

Step Sing 2020 theme
Grab a snack, take a seat, and relax for a "A Night at the Movies"! 

Step Sing is a valued tradition on UNA's campus and hosted by the University Program Council. In this competition, student groups compete in an epic performance, where they choreograph their own songs, dance, and story. Each year, the groups compete in the division of Women's, Men, and Co-ed, but all are fighting for the title of Overall Winner! In the previous years, all proceeds from Step Sing have gone to United Way of the Shoals. Step Sing has helped raise thousands of dollars for the community!

Step Sing is open to ALL recognized student organizations!

Rules and Regulations

Step Sing is a fundraiser held annually in February for a total of two nights. For 2020, Step Sing is February 7th and 8th. The groups will perform both nights and the winners will be announced on second night, which is Saturday the 8th.

In the past, Step Sing funds have been raised and donated to United Way of the Shoals to benefit our beloved community. For 2020, Step Sing funds are being transitioned to benefit our student union building, the Gulliot University Center, in order to make renovations that will create a more functional space for our student’s and registered student organizations.

Enrolled students who create a group of 10-40 can participate in Step Sing. Typically, Registered Student Organizations participate. A student can only participate in one group performance.

The individual groups will have no more than 10:00 minutes to perform.

The groups are judged off of their Entertainment Value, Musical Quality, Creativity, Choreography, and Theme within their division of Women’s, Men’s, and Coed. The performances are judged by at least five individuals that are selected prior to the show. The maximum score that can be given by a judge is 50 points (10 pts. per category). The group with the highest score overall wins “Overall Step Sing Winner”.

The groups can use any song of their liking, but it must not have explicit content. The same rules apply for lyrics. Songs can only be used once per show and are awarded in the order of the show. Order of the show is randomly selected at the first Captains Meeting.

Groups are allowed to use props on stage, but there are several rules and regulations. Please see the Step Sing Rules and Regulations once they are posted to see the limitations on the props.

UPC provides the groups with a 25 minute allotted time slot the day before the night of the first show. Groups will be randomly assigned their order of rehearsal during a captains meeting.

The groups will have the option of 5 lighting cues. This includes on and off. The groups will be able to practice their cues during rehearsal.
