About Walter & Judy Schultz


Walter and Judy started the Two Step Tidewater Virginia group (No membership or dues EVER) when 4 couples, who were cross-over ballroom and C&W dancers wanted a place to dance - other than the smoke-filled night clubs with a tiny dance floor overflowing with drunks and/or line dancers.


They rented a small dance studio in Virginia Beach, which was closed (and cheap) on Sunday Nights.  When they hit over 90 dancers on the dance floor on Sunday evenings, they were forced to move.


They have since moved to a larger studio, with more air conditioning capacity, at DanceSportVA dance studio. They now host a Friday night social dance each week where couples can dance to Latin (Cha Cha, Rumba, Bolero, Samba, Meringues), Ballroom (Waltz, Foxtrot Quickstep), Swing (East Coast Swing and West Coast Swing and Disco Hustle) and Country-Western music (Cowboy Cha, Two Step, Barn Dance, Night-club Two Step, Cowboy Waltz, Country Polka).

The Virginia Beach studio has a large (3000 sq ft) dance floor as well as a separate smaller (2000 sq ft Jr Ballroom) dance floor. It is a very clean, well maintained studio. They also have dance shoes and apparel for sale. They have a very good Air Conditioning/Heating system. The DanceSportVA staff has been very supportive of us and will make everyone feel welcome. We have been assured that we can have Friday night without interruption throughout the year.

We hope everyone who has enjoyed the social dance on Friday will continue to attend. We will do everything we can to make this transition as smooth as possible.


Click HERE to view pictures of the dance floor (Just the dance floors, and what they look like when full of dancers).

The Va. Beach studio has a great Maple wood dance floor that is never too fast or slow. The studio is clean and comfortable with good acoustics and a smoke free ballroom. The dancers who attend are friendly and try to make newcomers welcome. We provide some nice snacks, munchies and drink FREE.  We also put out some chips & dip, cookies, sodas and a bowl of lemonade. We try to use only popular music and rotate the play list each week. As amateur dancers Judy and I do our best to make everyone comfortable and enjoy the night out.

Kid-Friendly Dancing Environment

The Two Step Tidewater Dance, Located in beautiful Virginia Beach is a healthy, kid-friendly dancing environment for dancing kids.  In Country and Western dancing, many young people start dancing in their pre-teen or teen years.  Several of our dancers bring their children to the Two Step Tidewater Virginia events to dance.  (To dance, we DON'T do babysitting.)  It is virtually impossible to find an environment which is conducive to introducing your youthful dancers to dancing in a social environment.  At Two Step Tidewater Virginia, kids get asked to dance, as often as the adults. 

2-1/2 hours of Dancing for $10.00 per person

Introductory Lesson (7:30pm - 8pm) and Social Dancing (8pm-10pm) Soft drinks and munchies provided. What a deal!!
