Line Dance is the largest Greek-run philanthropy event held at Florida State University. Just last March, 17 sororities competed in the dance competition hosted by Pi Kappa Phi, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Pi Kappa Alpha, Phi Delta Theta, and Phi Kappa Tau.
Together, they successfully raised $72,000 for FSU’s School of Business. The check was presented by College of Business junior finance major, Robert Hicks and senior economics major, Dana Keller.
To kick off Line Dance, Pike hosted a Carnival at their house, which was followed by percentage nights at Blaze Pizza and Moe’s and a barbecue at Pi Kapp’s house.
The winning team had the most participation among the week-long events, as well as highest in ticket and t-shirt sales, and of course, the best dance routine. They also had the most likes on their sorority official dance photo.
Pi Beta Phi came in first place and Kappa Alpha Theta and Delta Gamma were close second and thirds.
Claire Larocca, the dance caption of Pi Beta Phi spoke on the feeling of winning saying,
Placing first in line dance means more to me than just a trophy. It means that the diligent long hours and hard work we put into this routine showed through on stage. Having these girls dance with me for my last performance was such an amazing memory that I will cherish forever. We couldn’t have done it without the support and determination of our entire chapter. Dance has been, and always will be my creative outlet, and I had so much fun dancing next to 12 of the sweetest girls I know! I am so proud of what we all accomplished together as a team!
Each sorority dance team comes up with a five-minute routine, equipped with costumes, music and props. We highlighted each of these performances in the videos below.
