The Gateway High Steppers
By Sylvia Maria Gross
Kansas City, MO – In LaVeda Davis' family, drill teams are a tradition. She learned the rhythms and routines on her mom's team. As a mother, she started her own. Instead of cheering for a school, the Gateway High Steppers are a community team with more than 70 dancers and drummers who range in age between 3 and 17 years. KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross recorded this audio postcard in a church basement in Kansas City, Kansas.
