Ngambika: Take It Back

Stepping is a form of percussion dance where dancers use their bodies, and a mix of stomping, clapping, and spoken word to create very complex rhythms. Many historically black fraternities and sororities learn step as part of their organizations. However, Ngambika is a non-Greek service oriented, female stepping organization for first year students at Emory University. No one knows about the grueling process that makes these women grow as individuals and construct a strong sisterhood every year. These short interviews are the insights of previous and current members that give us a deep look at the transcendence of Ngambika throughout their time at Emory.
