Country Dance Music for Beginners:

As you begin exploring Country dancing here in Phoenix through private and group dance lessons and by going out dancing, you can use the list below to assist you in identifying popular songs and distinguishing tempos between each of the Country dances. The Country Two Step, for example, will be a bit slower than the music that is played while dancing the Country Swing.  The Country Waltz is even slower in tempo and has a unique beat. Use the songs below as practice music while you are getting started with Country dance lessons. This music is just the right speed for beginner dancers. 🙂
