Originated in the 1800′s by European settlers, the Progressive Two-Step was an offspring of the minuet. In the old Western days when women were not allowed to dance with men, men danced together and that is the reason for the hand on the shoulder holding a can of beer and the other hand to the side. The only women who eventually danced with these men were Indian Squaws and that is where all the turns came about, because Indian women loved to spin. Two-step is a Western dance whose popularity has spread all over the United States.
Two-step can be danced to contemporary country music and is a very popular dance at many country western clubs and social events.
Two-Step songs and artists include:
All Jacked Up-Gretchen Wilson
Party of One- Trick Pony
Down by the Chatahoochee-Alan Jackson
