Why Dance?

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 many more) are yours with Shawn Trautman Instruction!

Third, you’ll get more than just beginner lessons, you’ll get the best intermediate and advanced dance lessons on the market, especially designed to get you dancing along and looking great in minutes.

  • Fastest way to learn the country Two-Step
  • Allows you to easily master Two-Step skills to show off and impress on the dance floor
  • Perfect set up for beginner Two-Step dancers
  • Killer Two-Step music to practice along with
  • The “little things”: the tips, tricks, and secrets that separate the dancers that look really good on the floor from the crowd that is just “hanging in there” until the end of the song
  • …and a whole LOT more!

Basically, the unique Shawn Trautman Instruction method will get you Two-Stepping quickly, and give you everything you need to create dancing success every time.

“My husband and I have been trying to learn to dance at the old age of 50 – “It is hard to teach an old dog new tricks!” Shawn’s break down of how to do the steps & how to confidently LEAD them has given my husband the courage and skill to keep learning! Shawn teaches how to put the moves together. The result? A husband less overwhelmed by his responsibilites of leading, and more FUN on the dance floor! It has been SO great to be a able to practice in our own home, and on our own time. The teaching is so well done we will be getting more for the different styles of dance.”

What is Two-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 earliest forms of Two-Step 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).

Where to Start?

As you look at your lesson options in Two-Step, don’t be overwhelmed. If you already dance, but just not Two-Step, jump into Two-Step 101, a beginner lesson that covers all of the fundamentals. If you are an absolute beginner, or simply like getting every single detail, dive into Two-Step Basics. Once you are comfortable and confident with the beginner content, progress into Moves & Patterns Volume 1. All of the Moves & Patterns lessons are intermediate level, growing progressively more complex. Take your time. If you can, go out dancing in between lessons to cement the new steps into your repertoire. When you are ready, the Advanced lessons are waiting for you! There is a lot to learn, but Shawn is there with you every step of the way.

“I was struggling with dancing the two step, and our local lessons move just a little too fast, and I didn’t want to give up but I was becoming so frustrated and there were times I felt like giving up. I came across the Shawn Trautman two step lessons on youtube and realized he is the instructor for me. I watched the two step video on youtube and practiced it for several days, and by the next class I didn’t have trouble with the basic anymore. I was sold and so I ordered the mastery set (DVD format) the very next day. I had to work out of town for two weeks and had the mastery set with me and practiced by myself in the hotel room every evening and when I came back to the dance floor, one of our new instructors said, “I don’t believe you’re a beginner”. She was asking how I became so good if I just started dancing. I told her I picked up these video lessons by Shawn Trautman and been using them nightly. She was very impressed.

She was commenting later that evening that I was teaching her stuff! Every week when I go out now, I try out my new moves and the ladies are watching and I think they want to try me out because they’re coming up to me asking to dance and butting their way in! That didn’t happen before, I usually had to ask the ladies to dance! While dancing, the ladies are making comments like, “Very nice”, or “I’ve never been in this move before”. Nicole Frye is the female instructor on these videos, and her comments are very helpful. I find myself repeating her comments to some of the inexperienced ladies on the dance floor so I can help them out too. I find myself watching these lessons over and over, and over again. There is just so much information in each dance video. Every time I go back to one, something new pops out too that helps to increase my understanding. Thank you so much Shawn, Joanna, and Nicole.”

Matthew C.

“WOW! The material in Trautman’s Two-Step Mastery System is really good stuff. Trautman/Frye present a series of moves with inside and outside turns starting out of the promenade position, working through torques and open releases, and eventually incorporate a windmill maneuver. When Frye, a national champion, pauses, looks at the camera, and says of the windmill maneuver, “it looks really fancy”, you know you can take that to the bank! In his usual style, Trautman patiently walks you through the leads for each move, giving specific instructions for body/hand/foot positioning, which ultimately means you CAN lead this (guys), and follow this (gals) very successfully. On the back end of the video there is bonus material to challenge you. This material gives you an opportunity to come back, once you have the basic leads and steps down, to refine the moves in the pattern to produce an even more fluid and polished look.

I’m not saying that my dance partner and I picked it all up the first time through, but we worked diligently through the material, used the moves at our next country dance night, and had immediate and positive feedback from people who were there. To me, that is the ultimate endorsement.”
