Alpha Step Show - Morehouse Campus... Late 80's
earl Hilliard Jr, Jul 7, 2016
This is an Alpha Rho Chapter Step Show from Morehouse's
Campus I shot, from either 1987 or 1988.
This was a few years before I myself crossed the Burning Sands of Alpha
Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Please excuse
the quality of the video, this was shot decades ago on the old VHS(c) medium,
by a then novice videographer!
"Floor rolls" ("floor ripples") are performed from 2:31 to around 3:09 in this video.

GphiG steps in school daze
Here are two comments from this YouTube video:
So many real fraternities aren't this creative. This is my favorite scene of the whole movie.
Rod Cooper, 2018
“They actually got this from real BGLO fraternities.."
"Gamma Phi Gamma" ("GPhiG") is a fictitious Black Greek Letter Organization that was created for this movie.

PLEASE HELP DOCUMENT THIS CULTURAL PERFORMANCE
I'm interested in learning about this acrobatic move that I refer to as "floor rolls” or “floor ripples". For instance, what is the actual name/s for this move? Is the late 1980s the earliest documented use of this move by historically Black Greek letter fraternities? Which fraternities do this move? Do any historically Black Greek letter sororities do this move?
Please share information and links to YouTube videos in the comment section below. Thanks!
