Tennessee State's Sophisticated Ladies

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QhpbolZMdw&feature=related

I remember back in the day, TSU's majorettes used to really look good.

They still have pretty girls on their dance squad but they

dance like white girls trying to dance like black girls but worse.

Stiff. Tired moves. Same ole same ole. Who's grandmother is coordinating this foolishness?

My sister used to say a lady named Ms. Gentry (I think her first name was Judy) used to be the head....don't know if she still is now.......but according to her that is why they do what she calls "fast ballet" and why they used to wear those UGLY silver stockings....

How good they are or aren't is in the eye of the beholder though.....I am sure there are those who think the Sophisticated Ladies are the Cat's Meow.......I don't know either way..all I know is I am glad they don't wear those fugly silver britches anymore...

I think Gentry's daughter, a former Sophisticated Lady, is now the coordinator.

Its all subjective but I will say I  need to see more from them to say they are bad. This  could just be a bad routine. It happens. nod Just go back and re group and come harder next week.  nod

I also agree with VG. To their own they may indeed be the cats meow. nod

I've seen all of the SWAC, MEAC, SIAC dancers including Tenn State, SSU, NCCU, etc....and some of the CIAA.

This is just a stand routine. I've seen the Sophisticated Ladies numerous times.

Mr Soul is right about them used to being HOT STUFF back in the day.

Not sure if I would call the the worst, but they aren't on my 10 favorite hbcu dancers list....okay, if I had a list.

My Top 10 would be:

JSU's Prancing Jsettes

SU's Dancing Dolls

Tuskegee's Piperettes

Morehouse's Mahogany In Motion

Texas Southern's Motion of the Ocean

SCSU's Champagne

BCU's 14 Karat Gold

Alabama State's Stingettes

PV A&M's Black Foxes

Morgan State's Foxy Dancers

I'd also throw in Howard's Ooh La La dancers,

Norfolk State's HOT ICE and Hampton's Ebony Fire


 Wink  these are MY favorites. Your list my vary.  lol

I planned to look at the video and come back to tell you that you were being mean, but.....I'm not even a dancer and I could tell that it isn't very good. I looked at another video of the SU dolls versus the TSU  women and SU smoked them, cold blooded, please send the young ladies some help, they don't deserve this, wow

hey, seriously, I'm not picking on the Sophisticated Ladies. They are always very pretty girls. I just remember when the squad used to be really good. In fact, the cheer/dance squad, the Tiger Gems, are hotter than the Ladies.  I'd just like to see them come back up to the caliber that they used to be.  Wink

fortunately, I don't think they wear those tacky outfits anymore, I hope.

Last few years I have seen them, they have had on pretty decent outfits.

nothing out of the ordinary or overly sexy and the Ladies are always pretty.

But those moves?  My 5th grade science teacher has funkier moves.  brickwall
