It is characterized by an elastic look that results from its extension-compression technique of partner connection.

The country Two Step is a style that has roots in Foxtrot, Jitterbug, Polka, and Texas Waltz.  Its a progressive dance which means it moves around the dance floor, usually in a counterclockwise manner.  This style can vary depending on the state and dance floor you are on, but ultimately its a partner dance staple in the country scene and a fun dance suitable for all levels!
