De Barker: KC's Queen Of The Line Dance & The Two-Step
When it comes to line dancing, most people think of country & western dances like the Boot Scootin’ Boogie. But in African American communities all over the country, “soul” line dancing is everywhere—at wedding and retirement receptions, nightclubs and parties.
Here locally, the Kansas City Two-Step—a couples dance—is also wildly popular.
And we have our own line and step-dancing guru: De Barker is a software engineer by day, and, in the evening, she teaches line dancing and two- step at the Southeast Community Center.
