APRIL - Cincinnati, Ohio
I was born and raised in the Queen City, Cincinnati, Ohio. Although a very conservative city I was introduced to Chicago Style Steppin in the summer of 2006. After my first two classes, Steppin became an enjoyable hobby that I have dedicated a lot of time and energy into learning how to master. I began teaching the art of Steppin in 2008 and have conducted workshops for women in different areas.
During my journey to find a Mentor/Instructor a great friend introduced me to Brian “Steppin B” Patterson. Steppin B took me under his wing in February 2010. It wasn’t until I met Steppin “B” that my dance began to grow and evolve into what it is today. Within the two years that I have been part of the Steppin “B” family I made my first appearance in the 2011 WLSC, am able to follow any lead, and has become an adored Steppin icon in many areas. My Steppin “B” family, networking, teaching, learning, traveling, and the dance in itself are all the things that inspires me to keep Steppin.
