A RISCy weekend

Every year step and stroll shows reinvent the wheel and look for new ways to attract visitors. This year's annual RISC (Remo Inc. Step Championship) competition will encompass an entire weekend of activities. Year after year step/stroll shows seem to be the same thing, that's why I'm happy to see Remo Inc. incorporate new activities; and not just Greek activities. Hopefully someone new will also win the show.

New and old to this year's show:

  • R.I.S.C. Workshops – Every hour they will be teaching a step and dance workshop focused on learning the basics of various art forms.
  • There is a special step class referred to as “Mommy/Daddy and Me”, where you can learn how to step with your children.
  • R.I.S.C. Pre-Game – Kicking of the National Step Championship they will have “carnival fun” celebration live games and prizes in the lobby topped off with their very own popcorn machine. A live DJ will be playing music providing an opportunity to relax & have fun.
  • National Step Championship – The highlight of the weekend is the national competition that opens up with live performances from our Art of Stepping Chapters / After School programs throughout the country and the national step teams as they compete for the 1st place prize.

RISC will be held on Saturday July 16th at York College Performing Arts Center located at 94-45 Guy R. Brewer Boulevard. For more information: 347-255-7538 or visit: www.ArtofStepping.org
