When exactly Country-Western 2-Step started is not completely clear. But what we do know is that Country-Western 2-Step started to form around the early 1800s. It originated from a combination of the One-Step and Foxtrot which were both popular dances at the time. The song Washington Post March in 1889 helped the dance gain further popularity. Much of its recent popularity though can be traced to the 1980 John Travolta movie Urban Cowboy where the dance played a prominent role. It also made Texas 2-Step one of the more popular names for the dance. While the movie might have guaranteed its popularity it was not the end of Country-Western 2-Step’s progress. The dance has continued to evolve including changing from a line pattern to the circle we know today.
