Learn to Two-Step in just Two Minutes
Have you ever wanted to learn how to dance the Two-Step? We found someone who can show you how easy it is. Robert Royston is a professional dance instructor to the stars and he can teach you the basics quickly with easy-to-follow steps.
Royston begins by explaining the proper close position hold, noting that of course there are regional variations. The man tucks his right hand under her left arm and places his hand on her shoulder blade while the woman rests her left hand on his arm. The free hands then come together about shoulder height.
Next, you need to know the timing of the dance. The two-step is comprised of a combination of quick and slow steps. He explains that Two-Step timing is quick, quick, slow, slow.
The man starts forward and the woman starts backward. With his left foot, the man begins the dance with a quick step forward. The woman will take a quick step backward with her right. Then the pair will continue in the quick, quick, slow, slow timing, just as though they were walking.
And that’s all there is to the basic Two-Step dance.
