Re: re: Country Swing Question

Ballroom studios and dancers should not try to answer questions about western dancing. They never get it right. Nor should they try to teach it as they are not qualified. I have a huge background in western 23 years of teaching it. What you are refering to as country swing is really the 4 count swing. Easy steps most versatile swing I know of. I give it to all my begineers to build their confidence and I use it 50% of the time. I've Taught wcs correctly for 20 years. 4-ct was buried by Goat ropers first then by ballroom who purposely changed it because they know western dancers really don't know how to dance. The Goat Ropers or rodeo riders and fans some how got on the wrong foot and the mistake stuck. This ruined a great dance. These people sometimes get on the back of live Bulls if that tells you anything. Western instuctors mostly ingnored it as the demand for other swings rose. Our loss. Ballroom calls it a four count Hustle their loss. 4 count is a gracefull,beautiful dance thats alot of fun when done correctly.
