Country Western Two-step (also known as “Texas Two-step”) is not to be confused with the slower romantic Nightclub 2-step, which is danced as a spot dance mostly in one location with only a small amount of travel. In contrast, the Country Two-step is a faster-tempo traveling dance that travels around the floor in a counter-clockwise direction, a basic 6 count pattern to 4/4 timing.
Although Country Two-step begins with very simple footwork, it speeds along quickly with many fun dance positions, turns and wraps, with arm patterns and movements that grow in complexity to make it a very fun and high energy dance style.
Danced to Country Western music exclusively, it is an up-tempo easy dance to learn.
