Our Country Swing Dancing Lesson Options

Country Swing is Easy and Fun!

 

Country Swing is our favorite partner dances because it is insanely fun, super easy and incredible exercise. It takes a very simple basic step and incorporates all of the fun dance moves that are popular in the other forms of swing dance.

Our country swing lessons are packed with everything you need to get out on the dance floor and having fun! Unlike typical group lessons that teach one move or step per lesson, our advanced teaching methods allow you to learn 4 – 6 weeks worth of steps in one lesson. It saves you time and money and you’ll be able to dance the rest of your life.

What Will I Learn?

You’ll learn the basic country swing step, how to lead/follow, arm tension, body positioning, how to spin (lead and follow) and be spun (follow). That is more than enough to get on the dance floor and feel comfortable knowing that you are doing it right and looking good.

If you want to learn additional dance moves and dance the night away, night after night for the rest of your life, you should consider additional lessons that day or over the next few days. We will teach you how to dip, do a bowtie, a side lean, a rolling dip, an infinity and a variety of other moves that will escalate your dancing to a new level. When you are finished, you will know far more than the average couple and look like you’ve been dancing for years. Talk about the best vacation ever!

Where are Lessons?

These intensive lessons are for private environments like our private studios or your Airbnb, hotel or home. Because country swing is a compact dance, nearly all homes and hotels have enough room for a lesson.

By default, country swing lessons are typically held at our private in-home studio located in East Nashville at 2728 Bullock Ave, Nashville TN 37207. In order to fit in the swing lessons, we will sometimes move them to the larger studio at 2844 Logan St, Nashville TN 37211 at no cost to you. We will notify you if the lesson is being moved to the larger studio. If you prefer the larger studio, you can choose it for an additional charge of $50.

If you prefer to have your lesson at a downtown honky tonk, we can typically accommodate, however, keep in mind that we have no control over the music or environment so it’s not typically as productive. 

Do I Need a Partner?

Pricing is for up to two people but you are absolutely welcome to come alone. If you don’t have a partner, either Dance Coach Rick can be your partner or we can provide on for you for $30.

Who Teaches the Lessons?

Dance Coach Rick is the “Grandfather of Country Swing” in Nashville. He started teaching tourists and locals how to country swing over a decade ago. Those people taught others and today we have a thriving country swing community in Nashville with several hundred dancers.

Coach Rick taught strength & conditioning to athletes for two decades before transitioning to teaching dance. He breaks everything down in an easy-to-understand way and relates it to you in the way that you personally need to hear or see it in order learn. That will allow you to learn easily, even if you have had trouble learning dance in the past.

In addition, he has an obvious, easy to follow lead style that he teaches to his students. You will be able to lead anyone after learning his method of country swing dancing. If you are a follow, you will be able to learn rapidly as if you’ve been dancing your whole life.

What About Two Step?

Folks who country swing dance frequently combine it with country two step for variety and to give themselves a rest during the more vigorous country swing moves. If you are interested in Two Step, you may want to book a separate lesson to learn that while on your trip.

Do You Do Wedding Lessons & Choreography?

Absolutely! We love teaching couples who want to do more than the typical “sway”. We can teach you the basic steps and put it together in an entertaining way that will have your friends and family cheering! Reach out today and we can share links to wedding videos and of couples we’ve taught. You’ll be amazed at how incredible you will look after just a handful of lessons!

8 Reasons to Choose Our Country Swing Lessons

Focused On Fun

Two stepping and swing dancing can be a lot of fun and great exercise. If you’ve taken ballroom lessons you’ll know that instructors can suck the fun out of the lesson by focusing on making everything perfect. Turn Their Heads isn’t like that at all. We focus on teaching you the basics of two step and country swing in a fun, positive atmosphere so you can head to any dance hall and have fun night after night. The lessons themselves are so much fun you’ll forget you are in a…well…a lesson.

We Come to You

Our dance coaches teach you in the privacy of your Airbnb, home or hotel suite. That means you have all your usual comforts and don’t have to spend money on gas or an Uber. If you prefer to dance elsewhere, you can come to our cozy dance space or we can meet you at a Nashville bar for a Lead & Learn.

It's Private And Comfortable

Whether you choose to have an instructor come to your Airbnb, or you come to our cozy studio, you will be in a private setting. You can be yourself, you don’t have to worry about the public seeing you make a mistake, you don’t have to dress up if you don’t want, you can just relax and have fun. For an authentic Nashville experience, you can choose the Lead & Learn option and have a lesson right there on the dance floor at a Nashville honky tonk!

Not only is Country Swing fun, it is incredibly easy to learn. The basic step is super simple even for a complete newbie plus there are tons of turns, spins and moves that are also easy to learn. Once you know the basics we teach, you can dance with anyone who knows country swing. And of course, if you want to move onto advanced moves, there are lots of those to learn as well, so the dance never gets boring.

Learn At Your Pace With No Limits

We start with the basics if you’ve never done any two step or country swing before. After that we will teach you advanced turns, spins, flips, tricks, lifts and aerials per your goals. If you want to go slow, we go slow. If you are absorbing everything and able to perform it, and you want more, we will keep giving you all you can handle.

Use What You Learn - Immediately

The dances and steps that we teach will allow you to walk into any country dance hall in America that does couples dancing…and dance the night away. Right from the first lesson you will have the basics down so you can go out that night and have fun.

Our Dance Coaches LOVE Country Swing

Most of our dance coaches dance for fun 2 – 3 times a week. They love to dance, love to teach, love to learn new moves and love to share the love. It makes learning from them fun and easy. They also know what it feels like to be a student because they are learning new moves every week. That helps them break things down so complete newbies learn, have fun, and don’t get overwhelmed.

The Only Country Swing Lessons In Nashville

If you’ve been on Google looking for country swing lessons in Nashville, you know that there aren’t any. Because country swing is more of a social dance, and because it’s so easy to learn, most ballroom dance studios don’t offer it. Those are the exact reasons we DO teach it, it’s a super fun social dance that’s easy to learn and addictive. The moves are pretty simple and can be performed by anyone of any age, size, height or shape. Plus there’s always another move to learn or trick to try so it’s always exciting.

Lead & Learn Lessons

 

Lead & Learn Country Swing Lessons are a great opportunity for females/follows to get an authentic country dance experience in Nashville saloons and dance halls. Instead of a formal lesson, you will learn by doing with one of our amazing dance coaches who will be both your dance partner and instructor. 

Lead & Learn is for one participant at a time however you can have several participants in your group. It’s a great opportunity to have a full-time dance partner and teacher for yourself, your bachelorette party or your girl’s trip for a night of fun dancing you’ll never forget.

You can expect to spend about 80% of your time dancing and being coached, and 20% being taught the steps and moves. You’ll be dancing and learning and burning calories and having the most fun you can have on a dance floor.

If you have a Nashville bachelorette party, this is a fun option. Your dance coach can focus on the bride if you desire, but give the other girls in your party a spin around the floor as well. This guarantees that the bride has “one last dance”. 🙂

You can also choose to do a combo lesson and learn both two step and country swing dance. You’ll be hard pressed to have more fun than a combo Lead & Learn and are likely to get face cramps from all the smiling. 

Nashville Country Swing Dance Lead & Learn Lessons are available at any honky tonk or dance hall in the Nashville area. We can recommend ones that have enough space to learn the most and have the most fun.
