Foxtrot Dance Lessons

In 1913, Harry Fox, a Vaudeville comedian, introduced a trot to a ragtime song in a Ziegfeld Follies that pushed all other trots into the background. Foxtrot became America's most popular dance and remains so to this day as the standard of social dances.The basic components of the Fox Trot are the walking steps and side steps. Crowded dance floors or nightclub conditions require that all three tempos be expressed with short steps. In larger ballrooms the slow Fox Trot is characterized by longer smooth, gliding steps, demanding ease of movement and control in order to give this dance an unhurried appearance.
