Have you ever wanted to learn Country Two Step but never had the chance? Do you already know some Country Two-Step and want to learn more? Are your dance boots/shoes sitting in your closet just waiting for a good Country Two Step Song to come along? Well now is your chance!

For the first time in New Jersey, first time anywhere, you will have the chance to participate in a 3-hour Country Two-Step Bootcamp with Country Two Step instructors Paul Stoddard and Sarahlynn Wilber!

This bootcamp will be broken down into three 1-hour segments, starting with beginner steps and progressively adding higher-level steps. Paul and Sarahlynn won’t be teaching just patterns though. They will be giving us drills to learn and reinforce steps and how to put them together into our own patterns! Sounds fantastic, right?  Well, it is!

The Bootcamp is only $35 per person, paid in advance.

Registration Deadline: Friday, July 30, 2021
A minimum number of attendees is required.

To register and pay, please contact Marc at (cell) 201-320-9176 (text or call) or by email: mplieb1@gmail.com

Payments can be made via Zelle, check or cash. Credit cards can be accepted but adds a processing fee.
