Excellent post from Frank showing how wonderful the Foxtrot is. Hopefully I can achieve this level of the step
My favorite dance is the Foxtrot. It’s a proper dance with proper music. It has class. (Anton du Beke)
Danced to the music of crooners, Foxtrot is a long, smooth, continuous dance designed to move down the floor and around clockwise (unless a pair has the floor to themselves as above). It’s easy, flowing manner displays face, style, and elegance … just imagine Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
Foxtrot’s origins are debatable, some have it beginning in the 1890s. Whoever is right, there is no doubt that the dance became popular.
There no question that early Foxtrot was faster than today as it was originally danced to ragtime. By the time of this film, the tempo had slowed down.
Danced in 4-4 (4/4) time, Foxtrot is smooth and graceful … not jerky … not bouncy.
Its easy walking style helped make Foxtrot the most popular dance…
