The list of the Couple dances to be taught include: Single, Double, and Triple Rhythms of the Texas Two-Step, Three-Step, One-Step, Country Waltz, Western Polka, plus the Cotton-Eyed Joe, 10-Step, and Schottische Partner dances. Emphasis will be made in proper C/W dance styling, leading and following techniques, dance/music distinction and the development of dance move amalgamations. Beginning through intermediate level moves and twirls will be taught using the "Dance Move building Block" method.
