August 17: Country Two-Step with instructors Bobby Pritchard & Carla Romine, current World Champions
A definite favorite in Dallas! Two Step is a smooth, progressive style danced in dance frame, and is characterized by weaved patterns and rhythm accents that separate the quicks and slows, emphasizing slows. The basic pattern is two short walking steps (“quick-quick”) followed by two longer walking steps (“slow-slow”). Dust off your cowboy hat and wear your boots for a true Texas party!
