Steppers Mourn Loss of L. A. Icon Divita Dutton

The Steppin world lost another angel as California’s Divita Dutton transitioned late last weekend from cancer related health complications. Davita was a staple in the Los Angeles Steppin community having been instrumental in hosting L. A’.s “Steppin 4 A Dream” for many years.

Divita LOVED to dance and always warmed the room with her bright smile. She would tease me saying, “I love you Pratt, but not as much as Darrel Davis. You’ll always be second to Darrel Davis, but you’re my guy.” I had an opportunity to hang out with her in Phoenix in April at the “One Step Promotions” event and she was as vibrant as ever.

ChiStepper sends its condolences to Divita’s family, close friends, and to the entire Los Angeles Steppin community. Below are a few images ChiStepper took of Divita throughout the years. Divita will certainly be missed.
