Macy’s at Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall is teaming up with the Pretty Precise Step Team, a nonprofit group that offers minority at-risk youth an opportunity to express themselves through the art of stepping and dance, for the first Pretty Rich Culture Experience and Fashion Show noon-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, at 7014 E. Camelback Road. The event will take place at the second-floor entrance and proceeds will benefit the Pretty Precise Step Team.
The event commemorates the third anniversary of the culturally diverse dance squad and gives participants an opportunity to demonstrate the poise and confidence that comes from being a part of the multi-faceted team.
Founded during the COVID-19 pandemic by mother-daughter duo Lateka Curtis and Cheyenne James, Pretty Precise Step Team was started to give minority, at-risk youth an opportunity to express themselves through the art of stepping and dance while learning valuable life skills.
“Three years ago, our goal was to connect with minority at-risk youth and allow them to express themselves through the power of dance, but this has grown bigger than I ever imagined,” said Curtis. “We have tripled in size and are on a path to keep growing exponentially. I knew there was a need for an organization that provided a community to these girls, with things like mentorship, academic and mental health support and a safe environment of sisterhood.”
The Macy’s partnership offers style, makeup and self-esteem guidance to the Pretty Precise Step Team. The company has also provided donations of clothing, beauty products and more to the 30 active team members.
The upcoming fashion show will be emceed by Channel Powe. There will also be a DJ, food and local “Boss Baby” vendors, plus a chance to enter and win a Michael Kors handbag, Coach watch and more.
