Get to Steppin’

Back in the day, when the lights went down and the bass went up, party people busted moves like the typewriter and the running man. Nowadays dance moves have made way for moves that are usually reserved for in between the sheets. We know who came up with the “chicken noodle soup,” but who can we blame for patenting the “dry hump?” While we get to the bottom of that issue, why don’t you step down to Carol Park and learn a new way to move. Some call it urban ballroom, but most call it steppin’.

Imported straight from the dance floors of Chicago, this style includes lots of grooving and moving, both up-close and at arm’s distance. Tonight and every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evening, the Carol City Optimists and the R.E.A.L. Steppers teach you how to do it at their step dance class, Step in the Name of Life. Classes are free and run from 6:00 to 7:30.
Wednesdays-Fridays, 6-7:30 p.m., 2007
