Walter and Judy are just great dancers who wanted to bring together the Ballroom, Country & Western, Latin and Swing couples dance scene in this area. Almost 20 years ago Walter & Judy set out to create an atmosphere where C&W, Ballroom, Swing-dancers, West Coast Swing dancers, and even Shag Dancers can get together and enjoy a great mix of dancing fun. If you attend dances at almost any location in Hampton Roads you will see that their dream 20 years ago has become a reality.


Walter and Judy Schultz, our Two Step Tidewater Virginia instructors, are residents of Portsmouth's Churchland area.  They are Ballroom, County-Western, and Swing social dancers, dance DJs and part time teachers.  Most weeks will find them out at local social dance events.  In addition to dancing at the local night clubs and studios, they travel a few times a year to their favorite Country-Western & Swing events.  They are known by just about every Country and Western dancer, swing dancer, and ballroom dancer in this half of the country. 


Walter is a machinist by trade and since 2018 a retired local business owner.  Walter, his daughter Barbara, and 16 talented employees at Parkway Manufacturing Company  produce a variety of parts for industrial needs. Parkway Manufacturing is located just across the M&M tunnel from Portsmouth VA, in Hampton, VA.


In 2002 Walter retired from his volunteer job as Deputy Fire Chief for Driver Volunteer Fire Department in Suffolk. Walter had been a volunteer firefighter for 22 years.  Walter was also an active member of the Driver Ruritan Club as well as a past President.


Walter is currently the President of the Tidewater Chapter of USA Dance and the Chairman of the NYE Committee


Judy, a graduate of  Norview High School in Norfolk, has been a dancer since before High School.  Judy became interested in Country-Western dancing several years ago starting with Two-Step and C&W line dance lessons at the "Banque" in Norfolk.  After she met Walter, Judy started taking private lessons in both Country-Western and Ballroom dancing.


Several years ago Judy decided to retire, after 32 years of service with C&P Telephone Company.  Judy was also a member of the Driver Ruritan Club. Judy loves to read, work in the yard and loves good music. She is a both a Redskins and NASCAR fan.


Judy is a Board Member of the Tidewater Chapter and the NYE pre-registration committee chair person.


Walter & Judy were married in June 1998. They were introduced by a mutual friend at the "Banque" and married less than a year later.


Still young Senior Citizens, they both remain active and along with dancing, love Nascar, snow skiing, campting and hiking the Virginia mountains.
