It's funny because what they do on the 'circuit' barely resembles what's done in the clubs, and that's what we show here...
The Double Two-Step is such a great dance, yet it's still not as widely known by the "dance community". I think this is mostly because the "professional country dancers" themselves have turned the Double Two-Step into a formal ballroom-like dance that's not appealing to watch, nor is it something normal people would EVER want to do. It's funny because what they do on the 'circuit' barely resembles what's done in the clubs, and that's what we show here...
The Double Two-Step is also known as the Double Two (Double 2-Step) or in some parts, the Texas Shuffle. It's all the same, but what makes this dance so popular is that it fits probably 1/2 of all of today's (2012) country music that they're playing in the clubs and on the radio.
On Double Two-Step 101 we break down the steps into manageable pieces that someone who's never danced a day in their life could understand. We start out with the basic rhythms and work our way into the connection & style of the dance and then, once you're ready, we take you into the lead & follow elements. What's great about this video is that you'll also hear & dance to a bunch of great Double Two-Step songs that will help you get into the dance and get a feel for the type of music to listen for.
Better than just the basics, this Double Two-Step video kicks off a number of others that are more detailed on the "Moves & Patterns" portions. If you're looking for a fun country dance to learn this is the one you should consider. Try Double Two-Step 101 today and you'll immediately take to a whole new style of dancing. Enjoy!
Every country dance fan should master at least the beginner steps of Double Two-Step (aka Triple Two-Tep & Texas Shuffle). Shawn and Joanna have you dancing along in minutes to one of the most popular of the country dances with an energizing progressive underpinning overlaid with relaxed and lyrical rotation and footwork.
Double Two-Step 101 is designed for absolute beginners to give you a feel for the dance and a well-paced lesson to get you moving and familiar with the dance. For dancers that are looking for a refresher, or a beginner lesson on a new dance to add to the ones they already know, Double Two-Step offers a fun review of all of the essential beginner moves you need to progress into intermediate material. These top rated Country Dance Lessons on Video (DVD) are a MUST if you're a serious country music fan.
Double 2-Step 101 is the video you need if you love having a good time on the dance floor! This dance is one that may turn out to be the most practical you'll ever learn as the majority of today's country music fits the Double Two-Step rhythm. This DVD is fun, easy-to-understand, step-by-step, and is full of danceable music throughout! It's designed for beginners, starts with the basics, and is absolutely the best way to learn how to dance the Double Two-Step!
It all starts with you seeing & experiencing the dance to get a good feel for how it's danced. From there, Double Two-Step is broken down into simple, yet manageable lessons that make the instruction easy to follow along with. You'll soon be dancing the Double 2-Step by working through several rhythm & timing drills both in place & around your floor to ensure you understand and feel it the way you should. Next, you'll get 'hands-on' as you work your way through the specific Double 2-Step connection points & style tips that help make you look the part!
It's easy to overlook a lot of the detail, so pay attention to the "little things" as you go (i.e., posture, timing, hand positions, size of your steps, placement, etc.). When you're ready, you'll learn & test your skills with several fun moves like revolving turns, inside & outside turns, & torque turns you can use with anyone & take to the floor immediately. Plus, you'll have a full soundtrack of great Double 2-Step music playing through the entire lesson that doubles as a practice tool each time you use the DVD afterwards - just turn it on and practice until you're ready to go out.

Nicely done - easy to follow
"Nicely done - beginners will learn the basics of Double 2-step and get a strong foundation of this dance while getting to dance quite a few different steps. The format is very easy to follow and I'll definitely use this as a refresher going forward."

Shawn and Joanna Trautman made this video fun
"We are getting the hang of these dances and we are loving every minute of it. We still have a lot of learning to do but we are sure having fun trying. This video gave us a lot of new options on our dancing and has given us new challenges. Last weekend we learned the two-step so we thought this would be the logical next step and we were right. The dances definitely have their similarities, but they are more different than they are the same. The triple steps gave us a bit of trouble at first and we are working towards keeping our bodies smooth while we practice (it's not as easy as it sounds). Once again, Shawn and Joanna Trautman made this video fun while breaking the dance into small pieces that we could understand and follow along with. We like that it followed the same structure as Two-Step 101 regarding the foundational pieces (rhythm and timing then style and connection then lead and follow). Once we get all these dances down our next challenge will be knowing which one we use when we are out dancing. Nonetheless, we are really enjoying the lessons and think highly of the 101 videos."

"Love it! Your new Double two step video broke down the basics in such a way that my wife and I got it immediately.
