    Chicago Stepping or "Steppin," as it is affectionately called, is a dance indigenous to Chicago. It is unique in that the style and demeanor of the era and city in which it was created directly influence Stepping. It's a very smooth form of dancing, but it's also a way of life with Steppin' events, clothes, music, and even attitude. If Hustle, Salsa, Hand Dance, Bop, you can learn Chicago Stepping. The dance consists of two or more people dancing as partners in synch to a 6 or 8 count beat to musical sounds like Jazz, Soul, Funk, R&B, Old-School, Neo Soul, Rap, or Hip Hop.


    In 2002, R. Kelly released Step in the Name of Love to the world. That song followed by Happy People created a craze for Stepping. R. Kelly put Chicago Stepping on the map with those songs, and the Happy People album dedicated to Chicago Stepping. Now, Stepping has gained popularity at a very rapid pace, manifesting in many major cities like: Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, Houston, the Carolinas, Milwaukee, L.A., Oakland, Arizona, Seattle, D.C., Baltimore, Virginia, Philly, and now New York.


    If you Hustle, Salsa, Hand Dance, Bop, you can learn Chicago Steppin' as seen in R. Kelly, “Step in the Name of Love” video.


    Steppin' is indigenous to Chicago, but gaining popularity in major cities; Detroit, ATL, Houston, Milwaukee, LA, Oakland, Seattle, Arizona, the Carolinas, DC, Baltimore, Philly, and now New York.

    Steppin is a great subculture. The dance looks great, feels great. It's fun to do.

    ^^If your familiar with the steppin sound you should know that Having A Baby is a song that you can step to.

    Kellz made it clear that steppin is not just dance When I first listened to Step in the Name of Love remix, I really liked that he explained stepping as an intro. He sounds so proud of the culture that he grew up with.

    This is great because it displays how much of a trend setter he is.
