What we're about

Meet and greet people in the Greater Houston area who love country music and dancing! We'll help you find places where you can take lessons or where you can dance! We'll not just do the Texas Two-Step but also Nightclub Two-Step, the Polka, the Waltz, the Cha-Cha plus East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Zydeco, square dancing, contra dancing and line dancing too! Dance as an enjoyable social activity or for competition! No partner is needed.

We will meet primarily at C&W bars, dance studios, party halls and festivals primarily in the southwest, northwest and innerloop areas of Houston and the outlaying areas, such as Spring, Clear Lake and eventually Katy. Most of the functions would be jointly held with other groups.
