About Country Two-Step
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.
