What we're about
Confidence is gained on the dancefloor. If you participate in this Meetup, you will get there.
BI Steppers is the premier Steppers group in Chicagoland where you can dance, party, relax and make friends.
This group is for anyone interested in getting out and stepping or learning how to step. NEWBIES are welcome and encouraged! We go South, West, Indiana and out of state. Events also include jazz, plays, concerts and festivals. We're designed so you can get out, have fun, meet friends and perfect your dance!
Anyone, regardless of Chicago style steppin' skill level is welcome. We go to major venues and venture out to find those hidden gems throughout the city. It's just as much fun to dance at a big set as it is with a few of your closest friends in an intimate setting. (In fact, I argue, it can be MORE fun.)
If you need lessons, we host, scout and MOTIVATE you to get off your ass and get you comfortable with stepping in public...........and with ANYBODY. That should be your goal.
You'll see yourself improve as you dance with classmates and fellow Meetup'ers. (Plus it's good exercise ;) You do not have to be advanced to be part of our group or to participate in Meetup or events............nor should you expect to advance overnight. Steppin' is a lifestyle, a transition into the mature, sexy and leaving the club life behind. YOU WILL HAVE FUN. We will throw you into the deep end and your dance will progress naturally. Organizers and "Steppin Buddies" are here to help you and are part of your journey.
*Note: We are VERY beginner friendly, non-clique and only work with Instructors who are patient and thorough.
*Note 2: You are expected to go to class, post your progress and participate in Meetup. You are not doing us any favors by joining up and just sitting there. We expect to hear about your progress on the board and that is a condition of membership.
