Terre Haute native, TV personality Tomi Rose to be judge at Oct. 12 Indy event

Television personality Tomi Rose — host of the Style Network program “Hot Listings Miami” — will be a celebrity judge for the 30th Anniversary Circle City Classic Greek Step Show at 8 p.m. Oct. 12 in the Historic Madame Walker Theater at Indianapolis.

A native of Terre Haute, Rose is acclaimed as a global real estate agent catering to a clientele that reads like a “who’s who” list of sports, music, fashion and entertainment celebrities. Heralded as the first African American realtor to sell more than $25 million in real estate in Miami-Dade, she has been featured in several prestigious publications including a cover of Network Miami Magazine.  

For those less familiar with the concept, “stepping” is a form of percussive dance in which performers use their entire body as instruments to produce complex rhythms and sounds through a mixture of footsteps, spoken word and hand claps. Sometimes elements of gymnastics, break dance, tap dance, march or African and Caribbean dance is included in a routine.

The tempo of the dance depends on the routine and sometimes props such as canes are used to accent the theatrics.

Stepping finds its origins in a combination of military close-order and exhibit drill and African foot dances; drawing heavily from the choreography of popular rhythm and blues groups like the Temptations. Growing in popularity with each new generation, “stepping” has been featured in several major motion pictures including “School Daze,” “Drumline,” “Stomp the Yard” and “How She Move.”

The 30th Anniversary Circle City Classic Greek Step Show will follow the game between Grambling State and Alcorn State in Lucas Oil Stadium. Step show tickets are $20 in advance and may be purchased at Indiana Black Expo at 3145 N. Meridian St. or by calling 317-925-2702.
