Every country dancer should master at least the beginner steps of Triple Two-Step (aka Double 2 & Texas Shuffle). Shawn and Joanna have you dancing along in minutes to one of the most popular of the country dances with an energizing progressive underpinning overlaid with an relaxed and lyrical rotation and footwork. Triple Two-Step 101 is designed for absolute beginners to give you a feel for the dance and a well-paced lesson to get you moving and familiar with the dance. For dancers that are looking for a refresher, or a beginner lesson on a new dance to add to the ones they already know, Triple Two-Step offers a fun review of all of the essential beginner moves you need to progress into intermediate material.

Triple 2-Step 101 is the video you want if you’re serious about a good time on the dance floor! This dance is one that may turn out to be the most practical you’ll ever learn as the majority of today’s country music fits the rhythm of the Triple 2. This DVD is fun, easy-to-understand, step-by-step, and is full of danceable music throughout! It’s designed for beginners, starts with the basics, and is absolutely the best way to learn how to dance the Triple 2-Step! It all starts with you seeing & experiencing the dance to get a good feel for how it’s danced. From there, Triple 2-Step is broken down into simple, yet manageable lessons that make the instruction easy to follow along with. You’ll soon be dancing the Triple 2-Step by working through several rhythm & timing drills both in place & around your floor to ensure you understand and feel it the way you should. Next, you’ll get ‘hands-on’ as you work your way through the specific Triple 2-Step connection points & style tips that help make you look the part! It’s easy to overlook a lot of the detail, so pay attention to the "little things" as you go (i.e., posture, timing, hand positions, size of your steps, placement, etc.). When you’re ready, you’ll learn & test your skills with several fun moves like revolving turns, inside & outside turns, & torque turns you can use with anyone & take to the floor immediately. Plus, you’ll have a full soundtrack of great Triple 2-Step music playing through the entire lesson that doubles as a practice tool each time you use the DVD afterwards – just turn it on and practice until you’re ready to go out.

“Nicely done – easy to follow”

“Nicely done – beginners will learn the basics of triple 2-step and get a strong foundation of this dance while getting to dance quite a few different steps. The format is very easy to follow and I’ll definitely use this as a refresher going forward.”

“Shawn and Joanna Trautman made this video fun”

“We are getting the hang of these dances and we are loving every minute of it. We still have a lot of learning to do but we are sure having fun trying. This video gave us a lot of new options on our dancing and has given us new challenges. Last weekend we learned the two-step so we thought this would be the logical next step and we were right. The dances definitely have their similarities, but they are more different than they are the same. The triple steps gave us a bit of trouble at first and we are working towards keeping our bodies smooth while we practice (it’s not as easy as it sounds). Once again, Shawn and Joanna Trautman made this video fun while breaking the dance into small pieces that we could understand and follow along with. We like that it followed the same structure as Two-Step 101 regarding the foundational pieces (rhythm and timing then style and connection then lead and follow). Once we get all these dances down our next challenge will be knowing which one we use when we are out dancing. Nonetheless, we are really enjoying the lessons and think highly of the 101 videos.”

“Love it! Your new triple two step video broke down the basics in such a way that my wife and I got it immediately. We’ve already worked our way through it all and have been out practicing twice in the last week! We’ve already started telling our friends about how easy you’ve made this for us. Thanks again!”
