To the Seniors


This is a long overdue post that I want to dedicate to the awesome seniors who have been fiercely loyal to the team….

I want to extend my gratitude to these seniors especially.. Thank you Billy, Elvina, Wee Ping, Jing Jie, Cheels, Nic and Kat. After the end of final exams in May, the team has been involved in a number of pro bono and paid performances.  One major performance was the NUSSU Rag Day held in conjunction with NDP 2011. Being the Rag Choreographer of both Kent Ridge and Sheares Hall, I enrolled the team as performers without “much of their consent” and I am really touched and appreciative of their support throughout this journey. Having to choreograph this historical Rag proved to be a challenging task due to the increased number of performers, logistic and administrative work. The seniors sacrificed their vacation to help train up freshmen and played a huge role in controlling these bubbly and at times over zealous bunch. I was really moved when Jing Jie and Weeps cut short their US travel plans to come back for Rag. The team had to perform a 1.35-minute stunts routine and they had 1.5 weeks to get the routine up. The Rag freshmen (whom mostly have became part of Steppers 11/12) worked really well with the seniors and were able to perform impressive stunts although they had only 6 weeks of training! It was definitely one of my proudest moments at Rag to see an All-Stunts-Up for the cheer segment. Also, a part of Rag’s success this year has to be attributed to our dearest Coach Yod who perfected the stunts and contributed as a Rag Make Up Artist.

Other than the KRaSHers rag, the Steppers were involved in training the Biz Rag Stunts. Elvina choreographed and directed trainings for these freshmen who pulled off steady and impressive group stunts, basket tosses and pyramids at the Promontory. The trainings with the Biz Rag team were immensely fun and we definitely miss working with all these potential cheerleaders!

I would also like to take this chance to thank supportive seniors such as Shiqi, XiaoXinYi, Mel, Beng, Deo, Eden and last but not least Edward.. who have always kept the team in their hearts and minds even though they have moved on from Hall. Thank you for coming back whenever we need help! 🙂

 

I know you seniors have not really had a break since SNCC 2011.. but lets all press on and work towards an awesome ATCI 2011.. Lets Go Steppers! (Where are we going?!.. HAHAHA)

Steppers Tryouts 2011!

Dearest Fellow Kent-Ridgeans!

KR Steppers would really like to take this opportunity to thank all residents for their enthusiastic support during NUS RAG DAY 11/12, and we hope that all of you have enjoyed the cheer segment during the performance.

KR Steppers, our Hall’s very own cheerleading team, has established itself as one of the top local cheerleading teams during last few years. Just recently, we clinched the 2nd place in this year’s Singapore National Cheerleading Competition (SNCC) Open Category, making us the best varsity cheerleading team. This achievement will not be possible without the continuous support from residents of Kent Ridge Hall.

In March 2012, KR Steppers aims to get better results, and we believe this can be achieved if YOU join us this coming Thursday at our KR STEPPERS RECRUITMENT DRIVE 2011.

Date: Thursday, 18th August 2011
Time: 8pm
Venue: KR MPSH
Attire: Comfortable sports attire and shoes, girls please wear tights.

We would like to highlight that ABSOLUTELY NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE is in any way expected / required!

Any enquiries, please, do email us: info@krsteppers.com
