  • This location is shown only to members

 

The 17th annual Chicago SummerDance series presents free Steppin' dance lessons by Majestic Gents and live music and dancing, featuring DJ MellowKhris performing Stepper's Set music.

Look for Tracey, your hostess. Bring your lawn chair, or just sit on your blanket (There are limited free lawn chairs available if you arrive early). You may bring water or snacks for yourself, however it is preferred that you buy food & drinks at the park's concession stand(burgers, chips, wraps, etc. they also sell beer & sangria) Alcohol is prohibited, so pour your fave "adult" beverage into an unmarked juice, water or pop bottle. Water is best to bring. Come around 5:15p or 5:30p for meet & greet.

Dance Lessons: 6-7p  Live Music and Dancing 7:30-9:30p

Don't miss out on this fun event!  Check Spothero for good rates on parking.

    Hi all... Im Beverly and Im new to the group. I wanted to address Sabrina and Cassandra's comments on natural hair. Sorry i could not attend the Steppin event but last minute responsibilities had to be addressed. I have been natural practically all my life with exception of 3 perms. Through my "fight" to stay natural, I have learned two foundational truths; food/beverage intake and shampoo/conditioner. First, the better you eat, the healthier your hair becomes. Secondly, one must use a shampoo/conditioner that helps the day-to-day manageability. I personally use the "Everyday Coconut" product line. It seems like the sodium lauryl sulfates, parabens, and even glutens made my hair dry, brittle and needing a lot of hair oil. The product works so well, that my entire family is on board. We even take our products to the neighborhood hair salon of choice. The aforementioned suggestions have been a dream come true for us. Check out www.everydaycoconut.com, too. Hope to see everyone soon!!!

    September 7, 2013

  • Tracey

    Hey everyone, feel free to bring your lawn chair or your blanket if you like, you may also bring snacks for yourself or some to share. Dance lessons will be provided from 6-7p. Remember that alcohol is prohibited, so pour your fave "adult" beverage into an unmarked juice, water or pop bottle. If you don't feel like bringing anything, they do sell food and drinks at the concession stand. There's a 20% chance of rain in the forecast tonight so hopefully all we'll see is clouds and nothing else, but feel free to bring a small umbrella or poncho I'm Looking forward to seeing you all tonight, bring your dancing shoes :-)

    • Tracey

      And don't forget to bring water to quench your thirst, you will probably need it after dancing up a storm.

      September 7, 2013

    September 7, 2013

  • Kevin L.

    I'm bringing a extra large pizza if anyone wants a snack... Using a Groupon that expires today. 5PM

  • Kinni J.

    Should we bring lawn chairs?

    1 · September 7, 2013

    • LaShon

      Many people do bring them, but they're the ones usually talking & drinking...not usually dancing. If you expect to be on your floor a lot, leave it.

    Maybe. Want to be there, if I can make it. The Magestic Gents have some incredible steppers in their club. As true steppers would say, "Steppin' is a way of life". Enjoy!

  • Cassandra F. M.

    We did not step in the "D' so I am interested in learning how to step. I am also loving how free it feels to see so many people with dreads and natural hair. It is very encouraging. I went natural since I moved here and still trying to work it out. Looking for hints as well as learning to step. Looking to have some good old fashion fun!

    3 · September 5, 2013

    • Sabrina

      Hi Cassandra I just went natural last year it's been a challenge but I LOVE it. Hope to see u there.

      September 5, 2013

    • Cassandra F. M.

      I love it too. But it is a challenge. Takes much more time then the chemicals. But, I am determined. I hope to see you there as well.

    We didn't step in NY but now that I'm in Chiago, I need to learn. Steppers can be tempermental so I need to get better.
