What We Dance

 

2-Step

Quick, Quick, Slow, Slow

Take a spin around the dance floor in this partner dance as either a lead or a follow. Also known as the Texas Two-Step, country music with 4/4 time signature most frequently accompanies this dance that is based on two quick steps followed by two slow steps.

 

Waltz

One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six

Float on a cloud or attend a 17th Century ball when Waltzing with us. We Waltz to country, pop, instrumental, and any music in between with 3/4 time signature and a beat to twirl to.

 
 

Line Dance

64 Count, 4 Wall

Get your Grapevine, Kick-Ball-Change, and Shuffle Step on! Check out our Song & Line Dance list for the latest updates.

 
 
 

Our Community

Dancing is our primary activity, but the best attribute of 412Step is the community and connections that are made and maintained through our events. We strive to create a low-key and welcoming environment where all dance levels feel comfortable.

 

Schedule

While each dance evolves with the vibe of the crowd, typical events start with open dancing and a primary lesson for the night shortly after. The rest of the evening is a combination of partner, line and social dances with occasional reviews when requested.

Attire

We’re an informal group, and most dancers wear jeans and a T to our events. Western wear is certainly welcome. Wearing cowgirl and cowboy boots with leather soles will help your feet slide more easily. Boots are not required, but they are fun!

Participation

Watching works, but participation is the best practice. Don’t know a line dance? Don’t hesitate to jump into a line and go for it! We all miss steps and lose track of walls. It’s part of the fun! Take a pause, catch the beat, and hop right back in. 

Lead or follow

At 412Step events, anyone can be a leader or a follower…or both! Founded in the LGBTQA+ community, we encourage all dancers to experiment with the lead and follow role and to dance with anyone…and everyone!

 

Ages 21+ Only

No PartNer Necessary
