Students from more than 25 organizations will showcase their dance skills Tuesday in the auditorium, hoping for prizes and bragging rights.

The 2013 Homecoming “Yell Like Hell” dance and skit competition is being hosted by the Progressive Black Student Organization and Homecoming Crew from 6 to 9 p.m. in front of an expected crowd of about 1,500 students.

“It pushes them to come up with a performance, skit or dance according to a homecoming theme and allows them to just play that in a competition that shows and promotes their organization’s spirit for homecoming,” said Devin Carter, business junior and president of the Progressive Black Student Organization.

The organizations represent a wide variety of groups including Greek Life, student-run organizations and residence halls. Each performance will involve between 15 and 40 people.

“I get to be a part of the college homecoming,” international studies freshman Sandra Mulla said. “I get to work with my friends outside the typical setting and I get to represent Crumley Hall, and who doesn’t want to do that?”

Dorms have the possibility of a $1,000 prize, while Greeks and other student-run organizations do it for recognition.

“I’ve seen another student organization’s dance and it’s incredible,” hospitality management freshman Ria Gathright said. “It’s going to be some tough competition.”

The theme of homecoming this year is ‘Mean Green on The Big Screen,’ which has created a large variety of ideas behind each group’s skits.

“There are so many different movies out there and someone is going to have a really good one to feed off of,” Mulla said. “It will just be interesting to see how these big-time movies can relate to UNT.”

Each organization had sign up sheets for people and began practicing about two weeks ago, which included choreographing a routine and selecting music.

Carter said seeing people involved in activities adds to the pride he feels for UNT.

“The fact that it has actually been incorporated into the homecoming week activities, gives a sense of pride to those students involved with UNT,” Carter said.
