NOTES:
• Progressive-Style 2-Step refers to the QQSS style of two-step (i.e. starting on the "quick" step) most commonly seen in the US, but not generally practiced in LGBT clubs in California. We encourage those accustomed to the SSQQ "San Francisco" style of two-step to learn this style for easier dancing with our visitors.
• SF-Style 2-Step refers to the SSQQ style of two-step (i.e. starting on the "slow" step) more common in the western US, incorporating moves that have a swing feel to them. Visitors accustomed to the QQSS or "progressive" style of two-step are especially encouraged to learn this style for easier mingling with the natives.
