MCC Step Team Wins in Competition


The MCC step team, called Exitium, won first place at the fifth annual “Step or Die” competition at Temple University in Philadelphia in April. The team, which was established in 2013, had earlier won several regional competitions and faced the Princeton Steppers at the Temple competition in the finals.

“Two students, Aliyah Knighton and Charles Jones, founded Exitium in the fall of 2013 as a means of expressing excellence through the African art of stepping,” said Lori Johnson, the advisor. “With a purpose to educate, entertain and excel, Exitium has gained much recognition on campus.” In front is Lauren Villanueva.
