Learn the smooth, sexy, and soulful art of Chicago Style Steppin’. Originating in Chicago, Steppin’ has its roots in Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, and the Bop, and is a sophisticated social partner dance usually done to R&B, Soul, Neo-Soul, Jazz, and Funk music. It grew in popularity in the ‘90s with the release of R. Kelly’s song, “Step In the Name of Love,” and with classic songs like, “Be Thankful for What You Got” by William DeVaughn in the ‘70s. Beginning students will learn fundamentals like the basic “8-count” and simple turns, and intermediate and advanced students will learn to enhance their technique, style, and turns before moving on to more complex combinations.
