OUT to Dance offers country two step dance classes and more, on a rotating basis, at West Roxbury School of Dance:
A partner dance in 4/4 time, traveling smoothly
around the line of dance; two step is bursting with fancy twirls
executed while traveling across the dance floor. Country two step
is the dancer's fancy foxtrot; other very
popular country dances include country waltz, country polka, country
cha cha, and many line dances. West Coast and East Coast Swing
are also enjoyed on the country-western dance floor, but they
don't typically have unique country styling when danced
to country music on the East Coast.
Country two step is executed in a forward traveling walking pattern
around a counter-clockwise line of dance, using a slow, slow,
quick, quick rhythm, or a quick, quick, slow, slow rhythm. Once
the dancers become adept at the basics, many impressive spins,
wraps, and weaving movements can be added; other two steppers,
particularly many folks who grew up on country music in the South
and West, feel no pressure to impress, and just enjoy the most
popular single spins and smooth traveling momentum of the dance
while humming along to the music.
