C&W Two - Step; Two Variations?

I have not done much country and western dancing recently, but am wondering about something. I learned that there are two versions of the two step - progressive which is the walk foward on the slow, slow, quick, quick count and this as I best understand is the standard method.

Now, I originally learned what was later called the rhythm two step where there are two side togethers and foward, foward. What I don't know is if the rhythm variety is a local innovation or is a variation of the progresive used throughout the country. I have not danced outside of my local area much, so I don't know.

The first one you describe is known in the C&W dance community as Two Step. It is characterized by two slow and two quick progressive steps

The other dance you describe sounds like a newer dance form, known either as Progressive Double Two Step, or Triple Two Step. It is characterized by two chasses, followed by two walking steps (1&2, 3&4, 5, 6). Triple Two (as we know it here in Chicago) works well with a lot of the music coming out of Nashville these days that has a "rolling" triple rhythm.

Blair, I believe you are 100% correct on what you stated about the triple-2 . . . I didn't want to explain too much as Ghostdancer asked about the 2-step.
