First, we will meet at an authentic country western dance hall, a special type of club unique to Texas. Then, we will spend a few hours together learning the basics of how to country dance, specifically the Texas Two-Step and the country waltz. For beginnings, I will make sure that you are comfortable with the basic steps, and I firmly believe I can teach ANYONE who signs up to dance! If you are a more advanced dancer or quick learner, I will also teach you many of the advanced spins, twirls, maneuvers, and tricks that the professional dancers do on the dance floor. There will be lots of opportunities to practice what you know, and I will be there to help guide and teach the whole evening. In the case of line dances, I will also help instruct and teach you the moves to those. Finally, at the end of the evening I will let you dance the night away with your new moves. Without any pressure, you're free to enjoy the evening and practice all that you know, as long as you'd like to stay. Texas can be both rowdy and fun, so how the evening ends is up to you!
There is no better way to learn the art of Country Western dancing than from a true Texan, such as myself. I have lived in Houston for over 20 years and have two-stepped all across Texas, from urban nightclubs, rural hill country halls, and out on the plains of West Texas. I am especially qualified to teach, as I was the lead country dance instructor at Texas Tech University in 2014. Since then, I've been helping couples learn how to two-step and country waltz. I have taught at dance halls and even led the dancing at wedding receptions. I can not only teach the basic steps, but also all of the fancy spins, twirls, and even aerial moves. I love dancing more than anything in the world and think that you will too if you give it a try!
We will be attending a popular dance hall and social location in Houston, on the Northwest side, near the town of Tomball. This is one of the places unique to Texas that includes country dancing, social drinking, and a great party atmosphere. At this dance hall, they play a mix of live music and Texas country music.
最多可有6位年满21周岁的参与者参加。 I can teach people 1:1, as couple, or as a group. Note that it might be challenging to teach a male by himself if he does not have a partner. I'm still willing to try if you want to practice with people at the dance hall. But it…
ID (License, passport, etc.) for entrance into dance hall
Don't worry if you don't know how to dance! I promise I can teach anyone who signs up, so don't be scared to try! Also, we can try off to the side if you are nervous to take off the pressure. Ages 21+ only, per dance hall rules.
