    Press The Flesh

    I 'm learning all sorts of stuff in the new Steppers Planning Group (SPG) -- I guess it's not so much learning but recognizing things like we don't plan far enough into the future for many of our events. We rush to put the events together and within two months the event is over. Read More

    Some Solutions - They Will Help

    I could have broken this into three more columns but I'd just find even more to add. The success of steppin' nationwide depends completely on how many people are steppin' -- we need to increase that number but can't do it if the people in the genre are constantly at odds with each other over childish disagreements and a unwillingness to work out those disagreements.

At what point did they believe they could cross the line between free choice and control over those who just want to enjoy a dance or the learning experience? Read More

    It's Inevitable - The Flow Is Changing

    I was going to talk about toxic promoters and their effect on the steppin' community but with the events of yesterday that got moved off the radar temporarily. As a preface to that story I feel the need to discuss the issue of teaching steppers first. Read More

    Dru Smith - Not an Epilogue

    From the Red and Black Affair to Home Going -- When Andrew "Dru" White Smith died we were not speaking. We hadn't spoken in about two years. The cause of our fallout is unimportant. It had nothing to do with the normal trappings of folks who fall out on the steppin' scene. Read More

    New App, new page design, New Year. That sums up -- not really!

    Sam's Steppers Stories

    Sam's Story

    Someone asked me recently what was I valued most after being in the steppers game for so long.
