Welcome!

to Western Couple Dancer. I hope you enjoy the music hereon and the dance scripts for the music which are mainly Partner Dances and Couple Progressive Dances but do also include some Couple slot dances dances.  For a description of the type of dances in pairs see below:-
 
PARTNER DANCING, again speaks for itself. The dances are performed with a partner and are sometimes referred to as "Stop and Go" dances as they progress anti-clockwise round the outside of the dance floor, often stopping and turning the other way for a series of steps, but will then turn back in an anti clockwise direction (line of dance).

COUPLE DANCING, sounds like Partner dancing but does differ. It is often referred to as Freestyle and includes various distinctive types of dancing which can be spilt into two types, "Progressive" and "Slot" dances.

PROGRESSIVE DANCES - Two Step, Waltz and Polka, these dances actually progress round the outside of the dance floor (outside of the Partner Dancers)

SLOT DANCES - Cha Cha, West Coast Swing and East Coast Swing are performed in small "slots" on the dance floor, either end of the Line dancers, but inside the Partner dancers.

Western Couple Dancer can be found on this website:-

http://westerncoupledancer.tripod.com/

where you can find links to listen to western couple dance music numbers that are in the public domain, like all the audio music that is available free on internet websites. I also give links to audio tracks that can be purchased as an mp3 or as part of a compact disc.

I have entered on this site links to the music for all the Western Couple dances I have learn't since January 1987 at the various clubs I have attended or previously run, and also dances learn't when on Western Dance holidays and clubs.

On this Western Couple dancer website, some audio tracks are offered as free to listen to or download at some internet music web sites which have been placed there for evaluation and entertainment purposes, and as encouragement to support artists and purchase their music.  Most of this music can be purchased as an mp3 from official music sale sites such as iTunes, Napster, Virgin, Tesco Music Downloads, 7 Digital, and Wippit.  Otherwise, they can be purchased on the individual artists cd's

I have opened a social network site for Western Couple Slot and Partner Dancers as a place for couple dancers to meet, discuss and share everything to do with western couple dancing. This can be found on weblink:-
