Free!! Stepping Class with Dave Maxx (Wine and Refreshements Provided)

  • This location is shown only to members

CBPSN, the incomparable Dave Maxx will host a free Steppin' class Friday, Jan 10th.   For all of the transplants and native Chicagoans who have always wanted to learn how to step, here's your opportunity to get started! Wine and light refreshments will be provided.

Dave Maxx is a master teacher who will teach you to dance by listening to the music - no counting. Several CBPSN members attend Dave's classes.  I was completely new to steppin’ when I first started taking classes with him this summer, but after a couple of months I've gotten pretty smooth with mine :0) 

The class will start promptly at 7:00.  Please arrive around 6:30 to allow time to find parking, fill out an information form and grab refreshments before we get it in. 

The building does not have its own parking but there are plenty of lots on surrounding streets and street parking if you are lucky.

Here are some options:

Interpark Parking - 17 E Adams (Adams just west of Wabash)
Park1 (Harrison & Wabash)
Loop AutoPark (Harrison & Wabash)
IMPark (Harrison & State)
Park1 (Wabash & Van Buren)

We will have a great time so hope to see you there!

    It was enjoyable and I think those who attended, did learn something.

      I'm glad I didn't get there late, for I would have missed the simple basics. I'm going to practice so that I can determine my left from my right. :)

    It's about time to get my step on! I will be there with my slick bottom shoes. :)

    • Sly H.

      Hey Eve! I think stepping is like personality, we all have our distinctive qualities. Thanks

      1 · January 5, 2014

  • Candice

    This sounds fun! Hopefully I will be able to make it. I am new to Chicago and this would be my first meetup! What type of clothes/shoes should be worn?

      Hi Candice, welcome to the group! I'm also new to Chicago and i've quickly fallen in love with steppin! No special attire is necessary. The studio can be really warm sometimes, so you might want to dress in layers. The ladies sometimes wear or bring heels - makes you feel a little lighter on your feet, but flats are perfectly fine too. Looking forward to seeing you!
