Encyclopedia > Two step

Two-step (Two Step) is the name of several dances, some related to each other and some not. When the context doesn't indicate a particular Two-step, the more complete name is generally used. Modern dances under this name include:

  • Country/Western Two-step
  • Nightclub Two Step (also called California Two-step)
  • Progressive Double Two

Other dances with this name were danced in the 19th century in the USA under the music of John Philip Sousa marches (Washington Post Two Step), which was kind of slowed-down, but jumpy Polka or Galop, as well as in the beginning of the 20th century in Europe and USA.

It also describes a subgenre of electronic dance music developed in the 1990s and which has become prominent in 2001.
