Learn to Dance 2-Step
w/the #1 Rated Video Lessons
Are you ready to Two-Step and look good doing it? Do you have what it takes? Have you seen that cowboy or cowgirl out the dance floor and wondered what it would be like to dance with him or her? Would they: (Option 1) stumble off the floor clutching crushed toes and a wrenched shoulder, or (Option 2) tug you to the side of the floor beaming, asking you if they could have the next Two-Step as well?
Now you can have Option 2 every time!
‘Yeah right’, you say. ‘Shawn hasn’t seen ME dance.’ Or, if you are thinking of your special someone, ‘Shawn hasn’t seen [Fill-In-The-Name] dance.’ No, Shawn hasn’t, but Shawn has taught thousands of wall-hugging, toe-crushing, rhythmically-challenged non-dancers to Two-Step w/style over the past 20 years. Are you country from the crown of your Stetson to the tips of your boots? Are you just country enough to find the radio station & shop for boots online? Doesn’t matter. Shawn’s Two-Step dance lessons were created to get you looking great on the dance floor, fast! Take a look at what one recent 2-Step customer had to say…
“…Quite frankly, Shawn provides the best and most comprehensive instruction of anyone I’ve seen. Shawn’s DVDs are so detailed and thorough that it would be almost impossible not to be able to learn from them…”

What is the Country 2-Step?
A staple at every honky-tonk bar with anything that resembles a dance floor, two- step (or Texas two-step) is arguably the most popular country-western couples dance. The origins of the two-step are murky at best, but the two-step of today was popularized by fans of country-western music. However, the root dances were transported out West with the covered wagons during the nineteenth century with the emigrants who populated the Great Plains and beyond. The two-step is a smooth progressive dance created for four-quarter and two-quarter time music. It has a six-count basic that is counted quick-quick-slow-slow or one-two-three (four)…five (six). The time is the same as in the fox trot; however, the contemporary two-step does not use the box step as the fox trot does. Also, each step progresses forward around the dance floor, unlike in the waltz and the fox trot. The constant forward progression creates an illusion of acceleration rather than a pause in a dance such as the waltz. The music that the two-step matches has a steady, even tempo with about 160 to 200 beats per minute. If you were to clap along, you would find yourself clapping evenly on every beat (one-two-three-four, and so on), unlike the waltz, where you would clap heavily on the first beat and lightly on the second and third beats. The two-step is occasionally referred to as the Texas two-step; however, it is done throughout the country-western world. Most histories agree that the deep roots of the two-step are the same as the waltz, with the predecessors of the two-step being the folk dances performed in the Bavarian and Austrian Alps. It appears that the waltz was adapted in the United States to match four-quarter time and half-time music. These dances grew into the fox trot and the two-step, with the two-step arising from the country-western subculture. As a uniquely country-western dance, the two-step is typically done at a country nightclub. You will see two-steppers at any venue with anything close to a dance floor where country music is played. If you happened across a barn dance, you would most likely see line dance and two-step. You can also find a version of two-step in various ballrooms around the country, but it is not a staple dance in the ballroom circuit. Often, you’ll find the two-step as part of a themed program for a country night or performance at a ballroom.
