Dating back to the Victorian and Edwardian times of the early 1800’s, dances carrying the name ‘Two Step’ (associated with Waltz and Foxtrot) have existed, however it is in this century that the two-step has evolved and has become known as a cowboy/western dance.


The “two step” can be done in a variety of time signatures – not just 3/4 – and to a variety of rhythms using the rhythm QQSS (quick ,quick, slow, slow) as a progressive dance following the line of dance (counter clockwise around the dance floor) with many exciting patterns.
