Black and Latino fraternities and sororities will be dancing in the Barry Kaye Auditorium this Wednesday at 6 p.m.

The occasion is the Yard Show, an annual event where FAU Greeks who are part of the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) and the National Pan Hellenic Council (NPHC) recruit new members.

The NPHC is made up of traditionally black fraternities and sororities, while the MGC is made up of traditionally Latino fraternities and sororities. Both are national organizations with chapters at FAU.

Greeks will be step-dancing and strolling, among other things, according to FAU’s NPHC President Jyny Jaspard.

Jaspard describes step-dancing as “movements with the hands and feet” and strolling as “basically line dancing.”

FAU Kappa Alpha Psi President Jordan Chang said that they would be doing just that. “Pretty much we are introducing our organization (Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.) and our chapter (Omicron Gamma) to the school through stepping, skits and strolls.”

This will be the first time Sigma Gamma Rho performs at the Yard Show. “We will have a surprise for all FAU students at the end of our presentation. We will also be doing a cane step, which is unique to our organization,” said SGR President Natalia Garcia.

Yard Show admission is free to all students, and a big turnout is expected for this event, according to Jaspard. DJ Scoobs will be performing.  For more information, go to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life in Room 218 of the Student Union.
