Welcome to The Urban Swing Dance Institute dba Who Dat Steppers.  We want to help you develop an active, healthy life style by promoting and teaching dance as a holistic means of health, fitness & wellness; to use the power and influence of music and dance as a means of social change & economic empowerment; and to provide  a variety of social partner dances for all occasions & events.  By teaching you the elements common to all partner dances we provide a foundation that enables you to learn multiple dances, if you so desire.  We don't teach you "A" dance.  We teach you "how to" dance. 

We also want to help our communities to become economically independent by using dance as a means of redirecting some of the tourism dollars generated by events like Mardi Gras, The Jazz & Heritage Festival, Essence Festival & Bayou Classic, to local communities responsible for the cultural economy that generate those tourism dollars for the city.   At The Urban Swing Dance Institute we're changing the world one beat, one step, one song, one dance at a time!!!
