Some common steps in country and western dances include the two-step, the cowboy boogie and the basic turn in closed position. Country and western dances also incorporate other styles of dance such as the Polka, the Waltz and Swing dance.
To do the country two-step, you must have a partner. This step is made up of "quicks" and "slows." A quick is one step for one beat, and a slow is one step for two beats. The beat count in the two-step is quick, quick, slow, slow. One partner takes four steps back while the other partner takes four steps forward, with opposing feet moving in unison.
