Let’s get to know each other.
Country Two-Step prides itself as one of the easiest partner dances to learn due to its walking nature, simple embrace, and lack of extra techniques to learn such as “rise and fall” or special hip movement.
Iconically recognized by the shuffling aesthetic of its steps done in pairs of quicks and slows (ie: quick, quick, slow, slow) is how Country Two-Step received its name.
