Country Dancing is not one dance, or type of dance, but rather a group of dances done to Country music. Country Bands or DJs will play a variety of songs that can be danced to with a Partner or you can Line Dance to them. The most common or popular ones are the Country 2-Step (Country Two-Step), Western Waltz, Country Swing (see Swing) and the Country Round Dances (these are pattern dances). There are others you may want to learn and we offer them in the other styles like Swing or Nightclub. Line Dancing is done without a partner and is not just for Country music (see Line Dancing descriptions for more details). Country Dancing with Dave Serfling's 25 years of teaching thousands of people to dance.
