Founding Purpose

Delta Chi Xi Honorary Dance Fraternity, Inc. was founded on April 20, 2010 at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The organization was established as an Honors Society by three visionaries: Kara Jenelle Wade, Jennifer Renee Cheek, and Kristina Michelle Rogers.

 

Delta Chi Xi was officially founded by Kara J. Wade and Jennifer R. Cheek as an honors society under the advisory of Professor Robin Gee, and recently transformed into a co-educational dance fraternity. Delta Chi Xi was founded with the purpose to acknowledge academic excellence, serve the community and share the art of dance among fellow students.
