Welcome to our newest writer to the SteppersUSA family Ms Sonia from The New England region of the country who will periodically bring us news and articles from Boston and its environs. Remember you too can write for us -- if you have steppin' in your area people need to know about it! Contact Markie Bee at SteppersUSA or through Facebook. Help us keep the world informed.

Baby it‘s cold outside but no major snow for New England (Boston) which leads us to the month of December, the Christmas Holidays and December Birthdays!

The month of December opened up with Dance Odyssey’s Sunday Night Christmas Party with DJ Gasp spinning the tunes for non-steppers as well as Steppers. This party was hosted by Steppin in the Bean with invited guest of friends, family and steppers. DJ Gasp is new to DJing so I’m sure this was a big party for him and the nervousness did show on the floor a time or two but he recovered well.

Nonetheless, the stepper set was in full swing with Dinner, Dessert and bubbly for those wanting that Sunday Sip. All Steppin Organizations were present in attendance, members of Steppin in the Bean, Red Velvet Steppers, and Original Steppers of Boston and of course Ms Sonia of New England Steppin Network bringing you this New England Report.

On the 11th Night of December, Steppers made their way from class to the American Legion William E Carter Post #16 to INTHEZONETHURSDAYS sponsored by New England Steppin Network and hosted by yours truly, Ms Sonia & Lady B and music by the Mixmaster Rudy Dottin. It always seems as if the floor becomes packed all at the same time. Stepper’s on the dance floor 2x2 groovin as Rudy welcomes them to INTHEZONE.

This monthly Set is neutral territory and welcomes all Steppers, Line Dancers & friends to get their Step ON! What is unique is that INTHEZONETHURSDAYS Zone nights may vary from month to month but we without fail, we recognize our 1st timers, newly introduced steppers, highlight different points about Steppin and Steppin Community happenings. However, the Artist Spotlight is definitely the highlight of the evening where Rudy Dottin put’s it down for the Steppers. I really would like to share more but it is the EXPERIENCE itself that captivates you on the dance floor. This month’s December feature was the sounds of Babyface & Toni Braxton left us “INTHEZONE”. Come and experience it for yourself every 2nd Thursday, 8pm – Until, 1531 Blue Hill Av, Mattapan MA in the heart of Mattapan Square.

Just yesterday, I stepped out in my Silky Red Blouse for the Original Steppers of Boston “Steppin in Red Holiday Set. As usual there is no seating left if you don’t arrive within the hour, Stepper’s were eating and on the dance floor. The space was decorated in Steppers Holiday Décor, Santa helper hats and colors of Red draped the dance floor with DJ Bright Eyes in the DJ Booth.

Boston native G was in town and it’s always good to get a dance with him. There were also some Dance Blues students from Somerville in the building who was not shy about taking the dance floor or trying to get their step on. Dancer-Danielle’s was visiting with friends, one of old favorite eating joints- Slade’s Bar & Grill left everyone satisfied and a chance to get some dancing in.

It is all about the network -- after talking we realized we all came from the same dance studio. Shout out to DANCE Union, Somerville, MA where I previously held Intro classes to Steppin & Line Dancing and my 2012 Spring Fling. Along with the spirit of Christmas, good food and steppin the night away it ended too soon. Follow any of our organizations on Facebook or visit New England Steppers Network and of course SteppersUSA for more about Steppin info in New England. As Always, I wanna go steppin…. Ms Sonia

Looking for people who can tell the story to the nation...
I'm looking for staff from Chicago, the East coast (Atlanta, Central Florida, North Carolina), the mid west beyond Chicago (Detroit), the west and  on the west coast (San Francisco/Oakland and Seattle). If you take photos -- that's great but it's not necessary (perhaps you know someone who takes photos at the set -- even with a camera phone) we are looking to keep the country informed about the world of steppin in your area. Give me a call or shoot me an email!
