Country dancing is dancing done to Country music. It developed in Honky Tonks throughout Texas and the Western United States throughout the mid to late 20th century. The "Texas" 2-step was developed from foxtrot and danced around the floor counter clockwise. It became very popular after the movie "Urban Cowboy" in the late 1970's. In country competitions dancers compete in 2-step, Waltz, East Coast Swing, West coast Swing, Cha Cha, Night club two, polka and line dance. Traditional Country/Western apparel is worn.
Although line dancing is associated with country-western music and dance, it has also been popularized in pop, swing, rock/roll, disco, latin and jazz. Each dance is said to consist of a number of walls. In a one-wall dance, the dancers face the same direction at the end of the sequence as at the beginning. In a two-wall dance, repetitions of the sequence end alternately at the back and front walls, and in a four-wall dance, the direction faced at the end of the sequence is 90 degrees to the right or left from the direction they faced at the beginning. Traditional attire is Country/Western.
Zydeco as a dance style has its roots in a form of folk dance that corresponds to the heavily syncopated zydeco music, originated in the beginning of the 20th century among the Francophone Creole peoples of Acadiana (south-west Louisiana). It is a partner dance that has been primarily danced socially and sometimes in performances. The basic step in zydeco takes 8 beats and consists of two mirrored parts 4 beats each. Casual or Country attire is usually worn.
