DANCE LESSON AND PRACTICE! NIGHT CLUB TWO STEP!

PLPOA Clubhouse

Created in the 60's as a more interesting alternative to slow dancing and is still found in nightclubs and ballrooms today. The Nightclub Two Step, like all dances, has evolved and changed over time. The original rhythmic style has given over to a gliding, continuous, strong, and powerful quality of movement with a big sweeping feeling. The Nightclub Two Step is a great alternative for dancers who want to go beyond a simple slow dance. Today, the Nightclub Two Step can be danced as a stationary dance, a dance that travels around the dance floor in the line of dance, or a combination of the two. It is often used to compete as a country dance, but it is also danced to easy listening, smooth jazz, and R&B music. Come join us this month and learn this wonderful dance.
