    Do you know of any clips on C&W dances and also instruction/choreography sites on the net? Thanks! :)

    [FONT=Times New (W1)]I had the same question about Rock’n’Roll clips. There must be Country dance clips apart from Bootscootin’. [/FONT]

    But, are they any good? Could you actually see how to do the step?

    Thanks, Kayak. I had no idea there were so many CW clips on Youtube. The NC 2-step clips are just what I pro and I are planning to perform a NCTS at the studio's showcase in June and he has never done that dance before. He's a great dancer and has an enormous sense of adventure, so he let me talk him into it. I used to do NCTS with my amateur partner but that was eons ago.

    I guess "leroc" is the European equivalent of NCTS? The clip of Cat Wiles and her partner is lovely...we could borrow some their choreography but I wish I could borrow her youth and flexibility...

    SlowDancer New Member I can't find that clip...I guess it was under "related videos" and now I can't locate it. Maybe I could look under "leroc" or "Catriona Wiles." I'm a dunce. Can't show it to my pro if I can't find it...

    One more thing, that first clip of Michael and Dawn Kiehm is mislabeled; it's west coast swing, not NCTS...doesn't matter, though, because that man is drop-dead GORGEOUS. I could watch him dance the hokey-pokey and be mesmerized.

    Looks like WCS to me . . .

    I remember seeing that C&W dance couple at World's . . .

    Sounds good to me. It would make sense being in a swing comp. I didn't post the video.

    My WCS is still at the stage that there are defined anchor steps. We have some fun and fancy ones, but there is still a defined compression, leverage and anchor. Kind of a swing feel like the other WCS video and a faster tempo.

    Now, the Night Club elements I have learned look very much like many of those in the first video. Plus, the way they move around the floor is similar to what I have learned.

    It will be fun to see if my WCS gets smooth enough to feel like my NC2Step :D

    I didn't think that you were the poster . . .

    I agree . . . very similar, and they seem to be rounding a lot of the WCS off like in NC2S . . .

    Yea, I'm trying to make it as "sexy" for my partner as NC2S can get!

    Looks like a WCS flavored NCTS to me. I thought I saw the NCTS basic pattern twice.
