Who Dat Steppers (WDS-NOLA), LLC (and its affiliate, Urban Swing Dance Institute [USDI], L3C) is a socially and culturally conscious Urban Swing Dance organization. We are dedicated to the valuation and preservation of the cultural and historical legacy of the original American art forms of Jazz and Urban Swing Dance (Lindy Hop); from their origins in New Orleans' Congo Square & Harlem's Savoy Club, to their contributions to the evolution of popular music & dance in America. Our mission is social dancing for social change. Our goal is to change health, social and economic outcomes for current & future generation. We use these uniquely African American creations as the foundation for unification, economic empowerment and liberation. This is accomplished by redistributing the tourism created by the native cultural economy, from the congested and overcrowded CBD, to the communities of origin, through the creation, development and support of dance clubs in our neighborhoods.
