Chicago Style Steppin is an urban dance that continues to evolve defining its unique style and culture within the context of mainstream swing dance.  Steppin has gained popularity throughout the United States particularly but not limited to urban America. The dance is a male lead eight-count swing and can be any combination of various movements such as Ballroom, the Lindy Hop, East / West Coast Swing, Jitterbug, Ballroom, and even the Tango.
 
Historians have noted that the early dance movements of Swing dances laid a superb foundation for the elements of dance to be shared and improvised over a period of time.  Although the dance is a Chicago Style step everywhere, each city bears organizations with their own unique names such that the dance is also ever evolving from state to state. The history however extends as far back as the predecessor of modern American music, Ragtime, which documents polyrhythm movements and sounds of its heyday.
