    Cowboys Red River: Texas two step

    by elmcarra Written Jul 23, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dancing has changed so much, but not in Texas. We still hold to traditions of formal dancing with a southern twist. If you have never seen a young cowboy gently moving his sweetheart around the dancefloor, you must check it out. Dont get me wrong, the old timers get into it too! If youre too shy, grab a beer and do some excellent people watching. Watch out for the cowboy who's had too much and wears his hat low over his eyes...give 'em plenty of room and you'll be okay.

    Dress Code: Hats, boots, belts and buckles. Most men wear pressed shirts and Wrangler jeans. This is not a rule, the environment is very forgiving for the city slicker. If youre up for buying your own duds, check out Cavenders or Sheplers...no need to spend a bundle, but if youre gonna do it, get help from the staff to look "authentic". Women have no dress code whatsoever, anything goes, what ever is beautiful and sexy...oh, oh, and comfortable. If you plan to dance, heels would be a bad choice.

    Ballroom Dancing, Country...

    by Cherie_J Written Aug 25, 2002

    Ballroom Dancing, Country Dancing, and best of all latin dancing....My passion is latin dancing! I can never get enough salsa, cumbia, meringue's, etc...

    Attached are some ballrom pictures taken at the Thai New Year Party I attended the night before New Years... If your situation doesn't permit traveling at the present time...seek out the cultural activities within your city. I knew almost nothing about Thailand up until a month ago...and now I am addicted to this particular Thai resturant in Dallas because I won the ballroom dance contest. The prize was a full meal for 2...

  • Lizard Lounge: Get your roll on.

    by grungeforever Written Jul 6, 2011

    If your visiting dallas and want to roll you could get lucky here. They play trance, techno, dance, house, everyone has there glow sticks and beware lots of young punks, it is 18 and up. I havent been in a year but i figure its still the same.

    Dancing: Salsa Dancing at Stratos

    by jm34bee Updated Jul 27, 2007

    If you want to Salsa dance on a Friday night the absolute best place to hang out at is Stratos Greek Taverna (aka Stratos). All of the best salsa dancers in Dallas hang out there on Fridays but it is also good on Saturdays too.

    There is a great DJ that plays Salsa, Merengue, Cha Cha, & Bachata but no Reggeton!! Ramiro does the salsa lesson around 9:15 and he is a lot of fun!

    $3 drink specials until 2 am.

    Stratos also has great Greek Food and Belly dancing most other nights...

    Dress Code: Anything goes but bring good shoes for dancing. Jeans are fine

    Glorias Restaurant Nightclub: Salsa Dancing

    by Prinsalsita Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Excellent place for Dancing and eating. It is a restaurant, nightclub with live music (at least on Saturdays)

    The wooden dance floor is big and smooth. there is a diverse crowd from beginer to advance salseros.

    The restaurant has several seccions, and families with children go there until 10pm

    Music and dancing start at 9pm and the cover charge is $10.00

    Dress Code: casual elegant or dress to impress type of deal. I dont remember if anyone was wearing jeans.

    I would try to avoid jeans and sneakers since it is a salsa dancing place.

    Country & Western Bars: Texas Two-Step

    by where2next Written Dec 11, 2003

    There are several Country and Western bars in Dallas. Many offer free C&W dance lessons usually on Sunday when business is slow. Hey, but who needs lessons - one just needs to find someone who can dance and they will lead. When I lived here I took lessons and actually got onto the dance floor. It's not that hard to learn.
