Although I'm not a fan of much of his music (or his actions), I LOVE the new R. Kelly song, "Step in the Name of Love." I like the chill, laid back vibe of it. I even like the video, which shows a bunch of people -- dressed in all white -- dancing on a cruise ship.

But, here's my question: what dance are they doing? Is that the 2-step? A shuffle? Does it have a name? Can anyone help me out?

It's called "Stepping". It's a big thing in Chicago, and has been for a long time.... only for the grown and sexy. :ura

ETA: just in case " The Arruh" is lurking around here somewhere, let me emphasize the part </span>

I must say I really love the song and the video.

This is one of the classiest videos R has ever done. I like the concept or everyone being dressed in white and when he dances with the young lady :thumbsup

Yup, STEPPING is very big in Chicago.

Thanks for the answers, ladies!

Now... anyone know where I can go (other than Chicago) to learn how to do the dance? I live in N.C... I&#39;ve never seen anyone do it around here.

Nappalonia and Blue Moon,, I feel ya.. I love to watch the steppers too.. Those folks are always "so fresh.. and so clean.. clean" when they come out.. They glide across the floor like they are dancing on air..

I tried to do it a few times with some "seasoned professionals" at a bar, and looked about as graceful as a donkey on roller-skates.

I don&#39;t feel quite old enough to be out there stepping yet.. Most of the folks I see are mid 30&#39;s and 40&#39;s..

I&#39;m 27 and creeping on up there.. I&#39;m still trying to hold on to the hip hop sets and lovin the jazz sets..

Besides i&#39;ve got 2 left feet.. I don&#39;t see me stepping like that.. :tiptoe

I&#39;m from the D, too. I love ballroom dancing. It&#39;s so classy and fun to do. Unfortunately, in the Miami area, folks don&#39;t dance like this.

There was a recent article in VIBE magazine about stepping. It was very interesting to me, I know if I lived in ChiTown, I would definitely be a stepper. I don&#39;t know about the matching outfits, though. But the dance is too cool.

Ya know what...the first time I saw that video I was taken back. Because here in NC, well really the Carolina&#39;s and in the the South people call that shagging. It is a really big party of Beach Music culture here and there are all types of clubs. We shag in my family, talkin&#39; bout a good ol&#39; time?!!?

Here&#39;s a link of a couple shagging, from the 90&#39;s I think

But its fun and when you are watch people what can REALLY shag it just looks so effortless and smooth.....

The "Stepping" video was really refreshing though....go &#39;head Chitown!!

Smooches and blessings
