The Foxtrot was the most significant development in all of ballroom dancing. The combination of quick and slow steps permits more flexibility and gives much greater dancing pleasure than the one-step and two-step which it has replaced. There is more variety in the Foxtrot than in any other dance, and in some ways it is the most challenging dance to learn! Variations of the Foxtrot include the Peabody, the Quickstep and Roseland Foxtrot. Even dances such as the Lindy and the Hustle are derived to some extent from the Foxtrot.
At it's inception the Foxtrot was originally danced to ragtime music. Today it is danced to big band style music. You can learn more about the origins of this stylish dance on our About Dances page on Foxtrot.
