Fraternity aims to teach dance moves

Every year, Phi Beta Sigma fraternity at Baylor hosts Walk like a Sigma, where women sign up to learn how to stroll. The event involves teams of women learning some of the fraternity’s choreography from one of the members.

Strolling is a tradition that is found among all historically black Greek organizations. Each sorority and fraternity have their signature moves they are known for.

Coppell junior O’Neil Mbakwe, member of Phi Beta Sigma fraternity said strolling is a uniform dance routine that different fraternities have to show their unity and have fun.

“It means a lot to me because not everyone can do it, and I am a select few that can do it and can do it well. It shows that I’m different from the others but the same as my brothers,” Mbakwe said.

At 8 p.m. today in Roxy Grove Hall, the event will be held as part of their Culture Sigma week.

Carlsbad, Calif., junior Evan Taliana, member of Phi Beta Sigma fraternity said he is excited for Walk Like A Sigma because he will be a coach and have the opportunity to choreograph a show.

“I enjoy it because I get to choreograph a fire show and make new friendships,” Taliana said.

This event is one of many for Phi Beta Sigma this week as it celebrates Cultural Sigma Week. Members kicked off the week by inviting people to attend church with them on Sunday and hosting an Italian Night on Monday where they served spaghetti in the Bill Daniel Student Center. On Tuesday, the fraternity held a forum in the SUB about police brutality.
