Chicago-Style Stepping, also known as “steppin” evolved from the “Bop” in the 1970’s. Traditionally it is a swing dance, but the steps and the music are so much fun that there are adaptions that are done solo or as a line dance. Judy Young, trained instructor, uses steppin to help you improve your balance, stay active and have a good time with other participants. As soon as we are able to hold in person classes we will be make this program available. If you want to be notified when the first classes are scheduled, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
