The JP Taravella High School Royal Steppers step team is open for business.

“They exist to promote sisterhood and bring culture to the community,” said their sponsor Esther Brunat. “They perform at a handful of basketball games and other events during the year.”

There are 13 members, and they are selected through tryouts at the beginning of the school year. They step at basketball shows, halftime, pep rallies, homecoming, and they compete at step shows about a dozen events a year, according to Brunat.
