Country & Western

Country & Western Waltz

A beautiful, graceful, and elegant dance, the Country Western Waltz differs in one major aspect from other ballroom style waltzes. The C/W Waltz travels continuously AROUND the dance floor in the "line of dance", whereas in ballroom styles the dance is done in more of a box pattern around the dance floor.

Night Club Two-Step

The dance position for Nightclub Two Step is with a more relaxed hold than typical ballroom dances. This dance was initially developed by Buddy Schwimmer in the mid-1960s. The dance is also known as "Two Step" and was "one of the most popular forms of contemporary social dance" as a Disco Couples Dance in 1978. A classic example is the song "Lady In Red".

Progressive Double Two-Step

The Progressive Double Two is a type of country and western dance popularized in the Dallas Fort Worth area. It typically consists of 6- and 8-count dance patterns.

The basic 6-beat pattern consists of two shuffle steps (counted as "1 and 2", "3 and 4") with the woman being led by an arching one quarter semicircle clockwise then counterclockwise followed by two walking steps (counted "5, 6").

Triple Two-Step

Triple two-step is also called double two-step and it's also called the shuffle or the Fort Worth shuffle. Like the polka and like the standard two step, the triple two-step progresses around the perimeter of the dance floor in a counterclockwise fashion.
