Wow! What a wonder night of Stepping at ECI Tuesday Stepping Under the Stars at the 31st Street Beachside Bar & Grill (Pier 31)!
Another great dance lesson! This time by Master of Original Chicago Style Stepping, ANDRE DRE BLACKWELL! We’re serious about furthering the popularity of this dance!
FEL DAVIS arrived and delivered a powerful, crowd moving and pleasing vocal performance! He sang three of his songs, including his latest release “Never” and the steppers flocked to the deck to dance! Hearty cheers and applauses followed his performance! Wow!
As for the music, the dance areas remained full all night and people danced until after the last song! BUT, your honest feedback would be appreciated. Some like more old-school, or more new school, or faster, or slower, or this, or that, or the other, etcétera, etcétera, etcétera. So, pleasing everyone is a serious task! Your honest feedback will help keep us in that evasive “happy medium.”
If you have photos or videos, please use the hashtag #ECISteppingAtPier31
See you next Tuesday, friends!

Q&A to follow • Free admission • Free parking • Wheelchair accessible • Dessert reception supplied by local South Side businesses
Carlo Rotella, writer, journalist, and scholar, grew up in two houses at opposite ends of Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood in the 1970s. One of those homes was a bungalow on the trim 7100 block of Oglesby.
Carlo returned to his old neighborhood of South Shore to find that the hollowing out of the middle class has left haves and have-nots separated by an expanding gap that makes it harder for them to recognize each other as neighbors.
Blending journalism, archival research, and memoir,The World Is Always Coming to an End uses the story of one American neighborhood to challenge our assumptions about what neighborhoods are, and to think anew about how neighbors can come together across widening divides to form a vibrant community
