In addition to providing DJ music for weddings and parties in the Treasure Valley, Sound Wave Music offers dance lessons too! The type of dance depends on your taste in music and your motivation to learn!
Here are instructions for a simple dance that can be performed to any music with a 4/4 beat. The Two-Step is normally danced to country music but go ahead and be creative! You might be surprised at how easy it is and how much fun you can have.
