History:

The night club two step had many names. It is known as the 80’s two step, the Disco two step, and the California two step. It was invented by Buddy Schwimmer in California in the 60’s. It grew out of a street dance called the Surfer stomp. He wanted to keep dancing when the ballads came on, so he modified what he was doing until it fit the music, then it took off in popularity in 1965. The night club two is danced to rock ballads in 4/4 time music at 64-88 BPM like, “Amazed.” With a Quick, Quick, Slow rhythm. It also has a more relaxed hold suitable for a night club. This mostly stationary dance also has a signature traveling variation that allows some lovely movements around the floor.
