WEST COAST SWING

NIGHT CLUB TWO

COUNTRY TWO

West Coast Swing

Hugo Miguez & Stacy Kay

~ Clearwater, Florida

West Coast Swing (WCS) is a partner dance with roots in Lindy Hop. It is characterized by a distinctive elastic look that results from its basic extension-compression technique of partner connection and it's danced primarily in a slotted area on the dance floor. The dance allows for both partners to improvise steps while dancing together, putting West Coast Swing in a short list of dances that put a premium on improvisation.

Carolina Shag

Brennar Goree & Autumn Jones

~ North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

The 'Carolina Shag' is a partner dance done primarily to bluesy Beach Music (100-130+ beats per minute in 4/4 time signature). It can also be done to contemporary. Today, the Shag is a recognized dance in national and international dance competitions held across the United States.

 

 

 

Night Club Two-Step

 Ari Levitt & Jodi Fleishmann

~ Seattle, Washington

Nightclub two step (NC2S, sometimes disco two step or california two-step) is a partner dance initially developed by Buddy Schwimmer in the mid-1960s. The dance is also known as "Two Step" and was one of the most popular forms of contemporary social dance as a Disco Couples Dance in 1978. It is frequently danced to mid-tempo ballads in 4/4 time that have a characteristic quick-quick-slow beat. A classic example is the song Lady In Red.

Country Two-Step

Robert & Nicola Royston

~ New York City, New York

The country/western two-step, often called the "Texas two-step" or simply the "two-step," is a country/western dance usually danced to country music in common time. "Traditional Texas two-step" developed because it is suited to fiddle and guitar music played two-four time with a firm beat (found in country music). One-two, one-two, slide-shuffle."

FAMILY

The name Soulingo means that dance is the language of the soul. Our brand is built from the love of dance, music & family.

 

The Cook family started hosting their own dances in 2006. The motivation for this was that no matter which direction our lives took us, we would always end up back on the dance floor as a common ground and a way to spend time together.

 

Our goal is to spread the love of dance, bring people together and give them an amazing experience while doing so. We strive to make sure you enjoy yourself at our dances.
