WHO ARE WE?

Blacklisted: The National Performance Team proudly represents Sigma Lambda Upsilon/Señoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority, Incorporated at national step and stroll competitions, as well as exhibitions and special events. We pride ourselves in breaking the mold with each performance and providing a unique aspect to the conventional step and stroll show. With current headquarters in New York City, our team travels to nationwide to serve our Hermandad and Greek Community. 

The “Traditional Step and Stroll Show” is not an all-encompassing representation of who we are, therefore we do not confine ourselves to that mold. Instead, we create our own realm where our passion meets creativity and innovation. Our performances are a combination of various aspects of our culture, both as a Latina-based organization and as members of a Greek-lettered organization. As a team, we pride ourselves in our innovative style and choreography in each performance. Our style provides a unique twist to conventional step and stroll shows by captivating our audience with a variety of hip-hop, reggae, salsa, merengue, bachata, and more!

 

While demonstrating the organization’s goals and ideals, we exemplify cultural enrichment through our signature technique: stepping with claves. Introduced to our Hermandad in 1999, claves are embedded in the organization’s history. 

COMMITTED TO OUR TEAM VALUES
