    Triple Two Step

    Just when you think you've got the Two Step down, they times it by three. But have no fear, Austin Uptown Dance is here to teach you everything you need to know about this old favorite. "But Vimbly", you say. "Isn't the Texas Two-Step the old favorite, and the Triple Two Step an off-shoot?" Actually, the Triple Two Step is very similar to the classic Texas Two Step of the 1970's (the glory days of the dance), What we think of as the Texas Two Step now is actually further from the original than this supposed "off-shoot." So by dancing the Triple Two Step, you're really getting at the heart of southern dance hall culture. You'll practice the basic steps in isolation, then work on putting them to music. By the end of the session, you'll be cutting a rug with the best of them!
