Step Team ~ Ruckus
Shonnie Dorsey Coach
Practice days Tuesday and Thursday cafeteria 4 to 6 pm
Ruckus is a multicultural step team with a mission to promote unity, teamwork, discipline and good sportsmanship. We do this by providing a positive, artistic and creative venue for the students of Potomac Falls. The team competes with other schools in the area and performs at pep rallies and during halftime shows to help boost school spirit. Stepping is a complex performance involving synchronized, precise movements with the feet and hands. It can be traced as far back as the 1920’s during fraternity pledges at Howard University. The element of drill formations came into play when many military men joined fraternities after returning from WW11.
