What we’re about
If you love music and dance, you can learn Chicago Steppin'. The home of Steppin' is Chicago, and gained popularity across the nation when R. Kelly released, "Step in the Love" in 2002. It's a partner dance to Soulful Grooves like Classic R&B, Soul, Old-School, Jazz, Neo-Soul, and Hip Hop.
The New York Steppers is the 1st and original Steppers Set in New York and New Jersey. Lead Instructors are from Chicago, trained, and certified in teaching the dance.
Join us to meet others who enjoy Chicago Style Steppin', love rhythm and soul music, and want to learn. In the process meet new people, enjoy adult interaction, and have fun!
*You can also find us on Facebook ('New York 'Chicago-Style" Steppers') and our website chicagostylesteppersnyc.com.
