Two Step Dance Lessons Houston
Also known as the "Texas Two Step", the 2 Step is the most popular country dance and an absolute must to learn. Anywhere there is country music, you are bound to find 2 Step music to dance to.
Country two step is a progressive dance and travels around the outside of the floor in a counter clockwise direction similar to a race track. In the beginning stages, the follower generally is closer to the outside of the floor, while the leader remains slightly inside. After a short time, dancers will learn "weaved" variations where the leader and follower trade positions back and forth.
While there are several rhythms of 2 step, the basic step consists of two "quick" counts, followed by two "slow" counts and is counted as "quick, quick, slow, slow". The follower alternates between turning to the left and to the right, while the leader mainly walks along side of the follower maintaining the rhythm and turns less frequently. It has been said that Country Two Step is the dance of "turning and walking" for followers, and "walking and turning" for leaders. Country 2 Step is fun for dancers of all ages and will certainly be useful in any social situation where country music is played.
