Chicago style stepping is a crazed enjoyed by many eager fanatics across a number of major cities including Atlanta, Georgia. Known as the Jazz of Ballroom, derivations of African American dance forms and old favorites including The Swing and The Bop have influenced the stopping style as it can be seen in Atlanta today.
Based around either a 6 or an 8 count method, most stepping dance clubs in Atlanta, Georgia, offer classes for beginners, intermediates and advanced steppers as well as providing both group and private sessions to suit all possible needs. In fact there are a number of dance clubs in Atlanta that also provide special sessions, including regular Saturday events, for example, where you do not need to come with a partner. This is clearly a bonus if you're interested in starting classes but do not have anyone to go with.
Two popular stepping clubs in Atlanta include Truepassionsteppers and Classactsteppers. Both clubs are well established and have a good reputation for delivering classes of a high quality, whilst maintaining that all important fun and care-free environment. There are many rules of etiquette that must be followed in the classes, like staying in your lane at all times, but these rules never get in the way of people letting loose and losing themselves within the music, as any music that has what is known as a "stepper's beat" can be used to accompany the dance steps.
However, even though there are lots of rules to learn and follow when taking part in a step class in Atlanta, the step dance clubs are as evenly concerned with making sure that everyone has a good time above and beyond the dancing itself.
For example, at Class Act Steppers (mentioned above) regular post dance class events are arranged in their backstage restaurant and lounge bar, encouraging the clientele to stay out having fun for just that little bit longer. Anything from live music to comedy shows are arranged as a little light entertainment to keep all those happy steppers even happier.
In general, most of the step dance clubs in Atlanta require that you attend the classes in casual attire or jeans, but make it quite clear that wearing flip flops or slippery, slidey shoes are simply not going to work. Nor are they happy to accept budding dancers with a pair of tennis shoes delicately lining the soles of their feet, so do be sure to check beforehand about what kind of footwear is going to be appropriate for a night on the step.
The other really good thing about step dance clubs in Atlanta is that the class times really do vary to cater for all those different schedules. Classes are arranged during weekend afternoons and weekday evenings for the most part, but private lessons are pretty much available whenever. What luck!
In short, there's nothing to hold anyone back looking to get their hiking shoes on in Atlanta … classes abound, all levels are catered for and a night of socializing whilst losing a few pounds awaits. If music, laughter and a new skill looks like a recipe for success, visit the step dance clubs sites mentioned above and make some inquiries.
