What will we be teaching?
Each month we have a different, unique style of country western dance to teach: Jitterbug, Polka, Waltz, and Two-Step. Read below for descriptions!
The most physically demanding style of dancing, this fast-paced style is based on flashy "floor moves", that you can break out in the middle of dancing, just so long as your partner is ready for it!
Typical Jitterbug Songs:
T.R.O.U.B.L.E by Travis Tritt
Boogie Till The Cows Come Home by Clay Walker.
This style is a very versatile, yet somewhat unknown one. Characterized by it's "big" and "little" steps, you can learn a seemingly never-ending list of fun and simple moves! When you're out dancing, song with this and the Two-Step styles are the most often heard.
Typical Polka Songs:
Dust on the Bottle by David Lee Murphy
Tight Fittin' Jeans by Conway Twitty
This typically slow style is one you'll hear in many slow dance songs, and may have even heard of when talking about more ballroom dance styles. Similar to Polka, you can whip this deceptively style out to impress anyone you're aiming to impress.
Typical Waltz Songs:
Strawberry Wine by Deana Carter
You Look So Good in Love by George Strait
Probably the most common style of country western dancing there is, it seems like everyone and their mother has had this style taught to them at some point or another. If that's the case, or if you've never heard of it before, it's a tool that any dancer worth their salt should learn and hone. Unlike Polka and Waltz, which have steps counted in 4's, this style has a unique "swung" step that is counted in 3's.
Typical Two-Step Songs:
Amen Kind of Love by Daryle Singletary
Paint me a Birmingham by Tracy Lawrence
