    What style to learn next after 2step?

    I heard WCS is a little difficult. Some of the dance instructors here recommended I learn ECS first before moving into WCS. Is Jitterbug a component of ECS?

    What style to learn next after 2step?

    Hey guys, I started dancing (I'm 30) in May of 2012 with mainly C&W styles such as 2 step and a little bit of Triple 2 step. I'm having a blast and wish I had done this sooner! I'd like to move on to another dance style so I can dance more and not sit out the songs I can't dance to. I...

    overthinking the two step?

    Wow, 2-3 months have gone by since I've started this thread and I'm having a blast! Of course, a big part of my success is due to the fact I live in Texas and have access to lots of C&W venues, vintage dance halls, and old-timers that are more than happy to teach a newbie like me a thing or two...

    What kind of cowboy boots for two step dancing?

    What I have found thus far is that dance floors are typically waxed enough so basically any shoes you wear would slide gracefully across the floor. I am trying to use my current cowboy boots (Ariat, yea...i know it's not a "real" cowboy boot) without having to purchase another pair. These have...

    overthinking the two step?

    I had to end up taking private lessons because I wanted to be sure I got on a solid foundation. It's sort of like weight lifting--I wasted so many years doing things on my own when I should have just asked a personal trainer what the correct form is on certain exercise. If I had done that, I...

    What kind of cowboy boots for two step dancing?

    I have these pair of boots, wondering if the sole is bad for two step/line dancing. It's a sort of a rubber sole. http://www.sheplers.com/Ariat-Rambler-Cowboy-Boots-square-toe/2639.pro Is it time to ditch these boots for something more traditional? I'm having a bit of a hard time dancing...

    overthinking the two step?

    Hey guys thanks for the feedback! Another question: Does everyone on the dance floor need to be on the same QQSSs or can some dancing couples be on the Slow while others on the Quicks?

    overthinking the two step?

    Yea, good point. I also got dragged into a line dancing class and having a blast. I know line dancing is kind of looked down upon by people, but have had several compliments by the ladies hehe (whom, btw, make up 97% of the class). This whole dancing thing started after I read a quote by...

    overthinking the two step?

    Hey all, I'm a beginner taking country western two step classes. Only taken 3 classes so far (1hr each) and having trouble keeping in correct step (QQSS) as the song goes on. I tend to over think things. When I'm about to twirl a girl, I start counting in my head Quick Quick, Slow Slow and...
