Triple Two-Step

The first dance on this video is Triple Two-Step.

The triple two step goes by several names – e.g. Triple-Two, Dallas Two Step, Progressive Two Step, Tripledieux, and even incorrectly Ft. Worth Shuffle. These names describe a dance that is a combination of polka and two step, which originated in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas area at least as far back as 1990. The dance became so popular with the locals that competitors sought to have it included as approved dance steps in competitions sponsored by the United Country Western Dance Council (UCWDC). It was finally accepted, and its popularity spread across the nation. It is now danced and taught regularly in large cities including Austin, El Paso, and all around Houston (the country and western dance capitol of the world).
