Snow And Classes And...

Written by Ms Sonia on January 29, 2015.

I'm resting, during the middle of Blizzard 2015, in Boston MA. I thought this would be a great time to wrap up the month. New England is definitely in the news! New England Patriot's 7th AFC Championship sparked by rumors of deflating footballs. Say it with me "Super Bowl 49" Can you feel my excitement? What a great city to live in. I am a transient to Boston so here are some tidbits of steppers history on New England.

It's a region of 6 states in the Northeast which consist of: ME, NH, VT, MA, CT and RI. In 3 states you can find urban dancers who step (MA, RI & CT). MA and CT is where you can find Steppin classes/events. BOSTON has 23 neighborhoods that make up the City of Boston and you can find steppers in Boston or surrounding cities and towns.

Classes are held weekly in Brockton, Cambridge, Dorchester and Roxbury. We currently share the dance floor with 2 organizations. NE Steppin Network "INTHEZONETHURSDAY" every 2nd Thurs with MixMaster, Rudy Dottin. Every Third Weekend is hosted by the Original Steppers of Boston with "Late Night Steppin" every 3rd Thursday, Steppin at Slades every 3rd Sat and 3rd Steppin Sunday at the Shipyard with DJ Bright Eyes.

I'm thankful to the Original Steppers of Boston who diligently provide workshops to our community with "Steppin is a Lifestyle Workshops with Royce Banks" for the 2nd year and also returning to Boston for the second time "The Dance Doctor" – Dave Maxx, "Essence of Steppin Workshop" during the Magnificent March event scheduled for March 21, 2015 at Hibernanian Hall, in Roxbury, MA hosted by Steppin in the Bean and Red Velvet Steppers.

Also in 2014 Steppers made their way into the state of Connecticut known as "The Authentic Steppers of Connecticut" with classes and events by Michelle & Harvey.

There is a lot of territory to cover and a lot of work in any of the regional states populated with a small segment of African Americans but the door is wide open for transitory or permanent Instructors looking to Re-Locate. Are you in Boston on business? Traveling to visit family… we invite you to Visit, See & Step Boston.

You can follow all of the New England classes/clubs on SteppersUSA, on Social Media and their websites for upcoming events @Red Velvet Steppers, @Steppin in the Bean, @Original Steppers of Boston, @the authentic steppers of Connecticut and @New England Steppin Network and of course keep it locked on SteppersUSA.Com for more Steppin News and the next New England Report.

SteppersUSA is  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 & including 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.  Shoot me an email!
