Under The Veil

When it was time to unveil the newest members, each brother was surrounded by other members of the Fraternity who share their same line number, congratulating them on becoming an Iota Man, and was given an opportunity to address the crowd with there name and their line, and why that name was chosen for them .They proceeded the plan the unmasking with 3 signature steps when becoming an Iota; Funky Funky Step Show, The Dig, and The Infamous Centaur Walk. The Funky steps how was done as it was intended to be done, with enthusiasm, precision, and individualism, requiring all four brothers to step in unison with spins and chants of “A funky funkyyy, A funky step show!” being repeated throughout the routine. It was evident for me at this moment the these young brothers were having fun and enjoying putting on a show for the audience. The Dig, a favorite among T.H.E.E., is a step requires the Ace of the line, is build up the hype of the step by yelling to the crowd and explaining what it takes “To pledge I-Phi-T!”. As Bro. Skeete began to shovel the ground, his brothers soon followed in unisons, resulting in the crowd erupting in cheers and applauses on their showmanship and ability to move across the stage. The finally end in a row prepared to perform the most important step/stroll/chant to an Iota: The Infamous Centaur Walk. Standing in a row facing the crowd, Bro. Skeete begins yelling to form the centaur line, followed by Bro. Carter, Bro. Baldwin, and Bro. Denard. As they came together other members joined in and began the walk from left to right, chanting in a call and response fashion, and telling the crowd “WHAT WE CAME TO DO!” As they performed the centaur walk on stage, Iotas on the ground joined in to, from left to right, chanting ” THAT BOW THAT BOW, NAAAAWWWW, THAT SHIELD, THAT SHIELD!”
