Nashville Two Step Lessons
6 Reasons to Choose Our Two Step Lessons
Focused On Fun
Two stepping 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 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!
Easy To Learn
Not only is Two Stepping 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.
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.
The Only Two Step Lesson In Downtown Nashville
We are the only company in Nashville that can meet you downtown and teach you Two Step at the honky tonks. Get great lessons in an authentic atmosphere. Of course, if you’d prefer, we can come to your Airbnb or hotel room, or you can swing by our studio.
Our Two Step Lesson Options
Classic country two step lessons are for private environments such as your Nashville Airbnb, hotel room or our cozy lesson space. Our two step lessons teach a relaxed, social style of dance that you can use immediately at pretty much any country bar in America and have a ton of fun. If you are wanting formal ballroom two step lessons for high-level competition, we are not the right choice for you.
Your Turn Their Heads coach will explain the proper frame, hand and foot position and the basic two step pattern, then give you a chance to practice with your partner. If you don’t have a partner you will practice with your instructor. If there are several of you in a group, and some don’t want to take the opposite gender’s role, let us know when booking so we can try to find partners for you.
Once you’ve gotten a grip on the basics, you’ll perform the step to music so you get the feel of it in action. Your dance coach will make small tweaks as you go, focused on the overall goal of having fun. Once you have a grasp of a step or move, they will teach the next one so you are progressing at a speed comfortable for you.
Beginners can expect to spend at least half their Nashville 2 step lesson actually dancing. We think that’s the best way to learn and have it stick.You will learn enough in one lesson to be able to get out on the dance floor and have a good time that same night.
Country two step is typically performed in a circle around the outside edge of a dance floor but can also be done in small spaces on a cramped dance floor. You do not need much space to learn the steps. A 5 x 10 space in an Airbnb or hotel room is plenty. If you prefer to get out of your house, you can learn at our cozy, private location or we can provide a classic lesson in a private room at a bar in town.
If you are interested in country swing dance, we can combine the two dances into one lesson. Folks who country swing frequently combine the two dances for variety and to give themselves a rest during the more vigorous country swing moves, lifts and aerials. A combo lesson will give you a great foundation to start your country dance obsession.

Lead & Learn Lessons
Lead & Learn Two Step Lessons in Nashville, TN are a great option to learn more and dance more in the same amount of time as a classic lesson. The difference is that you are essentially learning by doing. Your dance coach is your partner in a Lead & Learn and may spend just a few minutes explaining the basics in a way you can understand and away you go.
If you are athletic, have dance experience or are a quick learner, this is a great option to get in more dancing. It’s like having a skilled dance partner who is good at teaching on the fly.
Depending on the difficulty of the moves you want to learn, you can expect to spend about 80% of your Nashville two step lesson time dancing and being coached, and 20% being taught the steps and moves. Your dance coach may stop occasionally to explain the next move if it’s difficult, or if you need a break. Otherwise you’ll be dancing and learning and burning calories and having the most fun you can have on a dance floor.
Lead & Learn is for one participant at a time however you can have several participants in one session. Generally, each participant will rotate after each song. Just keep in mind that the more people in your session, the fewer advanced moves you will each have time to learn.
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” before it’s “same you-know-what forever”. 🙂
Same goes for bachelor parties. Give your best bud a chance to learn some dance steps while giving all the guys someone to dance with, even if they’ve never danced before.
As with a Classic Two Step Lesson, you can 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.
Two Step Lead & Learn Lessons are available anywhere there is a 5 x 10 space to dance including your Airbnb, home or hotel, our private location, a park, a Nashville bar and more.
