A Walk Down Memory Lane With Those That Came Before Us

TEXAS PUSH!

The set of dances we know as Texas Two Step and all the Swing Dances (including Fox Trot and Lindy Hop) evolved from Czech and German Polkas, Schotzies (Schatzis), and Brute dances. Our most popular version of swing in Texas, next to Jive, is the Texas Push (the category of swing that includes West Coast Swing and Shag). Does watching some of these "old timers" go at it in the video below remind you of watching the 'grown ups' dance with real joy and emotion? Southern dancing and its derivatives are the best! Check out the Czech kicks throughout the dances. Love it!!!

These are some of the people who taught us to dance. Most are no longer with us. But, man, could they move. May we always remember them, in one way or another, for helping pass along hundreds of years of knowledge on how to move our bodies to music when partner dancing.
