What I Love About Austin ~ Two-Step Dancing

Austin is becoming a more sophisticated and high-tech metropolitan area every day. New towering sky scrapers are going up and are being planned as we write this article.

However, Austin has a country western legacy. If you're from Texas, it's hard not to love that part of your heritage.  Cowboy boots and two-step dancing are two of the attributes that make Austin and Texas unique. If you were born here, you'be been exposed to the country scene, even if you are not an avid two-stepper. If you're just visiting, moved here, or are looking to move here, you need to at least expose yourself to country music and the Texas Two-Step.  It's a great way to acclimate yourself to what is ingrained in our culture.

Below is a list of local establishments where you can experience what, "country" and two-step, is all about. Many of these establishments offer two-step dance lessons. And while country music may be their main gig, they may also entertain their patrons with other types of music on occasion.  If you're looking to learn to two-step, call ahead or look on their website to see when they may offer classes.  And check out their calendar to see who's playing, when.

The Broken Spoke is about as Austin as you can get and features country crooners from Tuesday through Saturday. They also have two-step classes. If you want to see a true Texas honky-tonk, the Broken Spoke is it.
