Lake Charles step team heads to N.Y. for televised competition

The following is a Press Release from the Southwest Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau:

The nationally acclaimed Xtreme Step Team will be representing Southwest Louisiana on a national television network program, B.E.T.'s 106 & Park Wild Out Wednesday, Aug. 1 at 5 p.m. in New York City.

This will be Xtreme's second time performing on Wild Out Wednesday, and this time they will be competing for the Title of All-Star Champions.

On August 1 beginning at 5 p.m., viewers can vote multiple times by texting or by downloading the "106 & Park"app. The winner will be announced at 6:30 p.m., so it's critical that we support these youth by voting so that they can bring back the title for the state of Louisiana.
