Reginald D. Sullivan
Founder & President
Reginald Dean Sullivan was raised in Phenix City, Alabama, where he learned dancing by performing at family functions. Reginald, a very talented instructor, has been dancing practically all his life. Reginald is a very gifted and talented Master of Ceremony (MC) and is known for his unique, yet simple way of engaging an audience. He is a proud father of three and a lifelong member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Reginald is a dedicated member of Cornerstone of Faith Christian Church of Atlanta. His favorite saying is “God Bless America.”
In 2007, Reginald began instructing and teaching dance on a more formal basis. His love and passion for dancing inspired him to form his own dance group, the “South Side Steppers.” The South Side Steppers were awarded the 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 ATL Club Awards’ “Hottest Dance Group” in Atlanta.
In 2008, Reginald D. Sullivan founded the South Side Steppers in Atlanta, Ga. The group has evolved and is functioning well with the motto being “Dancing Is What We Do”. There are over 75 members in this organization and they have performed throughout the southeast and locally. They are also responsible for creating more than 10 original soul line dances to date.
His vision is to put Atlanta and the South on the map when it comes to soul line dancing. He is a Choreographer, Instructor, and Founder. He is a student first and loves to learn new styles and ways of dancing.
Tracy Yvette Dunn is a native of Atlanta, Georgia. She realized that she had an interest in organizing party events during her teenage years. While assisting her aunt, a wedding director, Tracy noticed everyone doing the Electric Slide, Cha-Cha Slide, and the Wobble. Tracy just had to learn these dances, and once learned, taught them to her family and friends.
Tracy discovered Soul Line Dancing in 2009 when she attended a line dance class with her sister at a local club. Tracy danced at that club for about a year, learning the basic steps. One night, the South Side Steppers visited the club and showed more advanced dances with a lot more energy. After watching the dancers perform, she was convinced that’s where she needed to be.
In 2011, Tracy became a member of the South Side Steppers, one of the finest and most hype groups in the Atlanta area. After 3 months of being with this group, Tracy’s welcoming and friendly spirit captured the eye of the South Side Steppers’ President. Reginald Sullivan asked her to be the Membership Coordinator (where she earned the name T-Pain). After 4 months in this position, she was asked to serve on the Executive Board, which she accepted with honor.
In 2014, Reginald Sullivan decided to make Tracy the Vice President of South Side Steppers.
After careful consideration, Tracy felt that this would be a great opportunity. In essence, she is a South Side Stepper for LIFE!
