Initially developed in the mid-1960s, Nightclub 2-step is one of the most popular forms of partner dance for slow and mid-tempo ballads. It combines the connection of slow dancing with contemporary music and a variety of interesting patterns. It’s easy to learn the basic steps and more advanced dancers will enjoy more complicated patterns. This class is for both beginners and intermediate students—everyone is welcome. Bring a partner, or come solo and enjoy this fun and easy dance.
$50 for five classes (per person)
$15 for a drop in (per person)
Nightclub 2-Step is a wonderful dance because of the wealth of music suitable for it. It’s a cross-genre dance with songs in many categories including, Country, Pop, Easy Listening, Big Band, Latin and more. Almost every orchestra, band and dance club will play a number of songs for the 2-Step. Here are a few favorites:
Like We Never Loved At All—Faith Hill
Unbreak My Heart—Tony Braxton

Make You Feel My Love—Adele
