Dance of the Day - Nightclub Two-Step

Wedding lessons are picking up again, and that means I'm teaching a lot of slow dances, and that means a lot of nightclub two-step. When asked to describe nightclub two-step, I say that if rumba and bolero and cha cha and salsa are the hot, sexy girls flirting their way through life, nightclub two-step is the girl next door. She's a bit plainer, but she's loving and sincere and in the end, she's the one who makes you happy. This is the video I use to show students what the dance is like at a beginner level, and explain that they can reasonably expect to learn two to four of the patterns demonstrated plus an entrance and exit over the standard six-lesson package.
