If you’re interested in learning how to “glide” across the dance floor, this is the style for you!

We will cover foundational rhythm, connection, patterns & technique.

Extraordinary NC2S should feel seamless. This workshop will provide you with a few creative patterns that are designed to go together. One pattern will flow into the next, creating energetic and graceful movement.

3:30-4:30 -- Country 2-Step -- “Flashy and Functional Patterns”: (Intermediate)

It’s time to put a little flash in your C2S. This workshop will provide you with some fun, flashy, and socially usable patterns to jazz up your dance.
