Why Shawn Trautman Instruction?

Social Dancing (including line dancing and all of the couples dancing that we teach here), creates and fuels a limitless supply of positive reinforcement, and intrinsic motivation. In simpler terms, when you get on the dance floor and move with confidence to music, an entire symphony of positive messages are sent from various parts of your body to your brain.

This is similar to the response your body has to hitting a home run, or slam-dunking a basketball. It differs in that it is amplified by the benefits to your brain of linking music, pattern creation, physical movement, and in most cases, social interaction.

For extroverts, dancing is one more thing to enjoy with other people, and for introverts, it can be a re-charging activity that can be accomplished without solitude.

Dancing creates an introduction to strangers, a reason to get together, and even keeps our minds and hearts youthful!

All of these amazing benefits of dancing and more are yours with Shawn’s easy lessons!

Minutes of Instruction

Country is the all-American apple pie answer to social dancing. The music is country-western, the feel is casual and comfortable, and denim is acceptable on almost every occasion. Cowboy hats and boots come to mind when country social dancing is mentioned; although they are not required for casual social dancing, they are prevalent and appropriate. Depending on what part of the country you are in, you might need to wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the glare off of the well-polished belt buckles.

When you go country dancing you are going to encounter a variety of dances, just as you encounter a variety of music styles within country music. Some of the dances overlap with ballroom and swing, but he two biggest country dances are unique to country dancing as much as the songs they match have a sound that is unique to country music. The two biggest country dances are related to each other, and are Two-Step and Double Two-Step. If these names aren’t familiar to you, I guarantee the dances are, and they are just simply called something different in your area.

Other dances that you’ll see when you go country dancing are Swing (also called East Coast Swing), West Coast Swing, Cha-Cha, Waltz, Polka, and even Nightclub Two. If you are in to country music, chances are better than good that you’ll hear a perfect song or two for each of them every time you go out. Shawn has assembled his best beginner dance lessons on the most popular country dances into a Country Social Dance Mastery System that will have you looking great with just a few easy dance lessons.

When you go country dancing (outside of your living room lessons with Shawn Trautman), here are some wardrobe tips that will help you feel confident and comfortable on the dance floor. If you have cowboy boots, wear them—they help you get into the feel of the music and culture. Ladies, close-heeled shoes are appropriate when learning social dancing in any of the subcultures. Never wear flip-flops or open-heeled sandals or mules to a couples social dance lesson. If you forget this rule, chances are you will only forget it once. Close-toed shoes are also recommended for ladies, especially while your dance partner gets the hang of the basic steps and leading.

Country nightclubs and bars are the best places to go out dancing in the country social dance subculture. Most large country nightclubs make it a point to have a large, well maintained hardwood dance floor with convenient rails on which to set drinks and lean surrounding the floor. Ladies, if you want to wear a skirt or a dress you can, but chances are you will feel overdressed. A sparkly or fun top with jeans (at any age) and close-toed, close-heeled shoes are appropriate attire for a lady at a country nightclub. Likewise, gentlemen, don’t even bother with anything dry-clean only. Jeans and a clean-collared shirt are appropriate, with either cowboy boots or non-sneaker shoes. Casual is key.

Get up and dance along with Line Dancing, Partner Line Dancing, Two-Step, Double (Triple) Two-Step, Cha-Cha, Swing Dancing, Nightclub Two-Step, a little bit of Polka, Waltz, and West Coast Swing. Shawn will have you up and dancing in just minutes!

“Alright so we were brand new to the 2-Step and decided we would try it and for the money this series of lessons cost we had no problem in making the decision to go this route. These instructors really break down the steps in a way that is really easy to follow along to. I really liked that they started with just the rhythm of the dance because that is one thing I often have issues with other dances.

Great instructional tool to learn the two step and other country dances. Highly recommend it. Also try out some of their more advanced moves lessons as we had great success with those as well.”

Chris M.

“I think Shawn’s dance instruction is great. I have been wanting to learn to country dance for a long time. I do not want to just go out on the dance floor without some practice and instruction, so these lessons work perfect for me. I practice in the privacy of my own home…….Now, I can’t wait to hit the dance floor. Thanks Shawn”
