The Fox Trot provides a good foundation for all dances and is often called the ‘get-acquainted’ or ‘first-impression’ dance.
Fox Trot is a basic dance from which you can acquire a good foundation. Learning to combine steps easily and smoothly teaches variety and manoeuvrability. The Fox Trot posture is attractive in appearance and helpful to all other dances. Being able to dance to slow, medium and fast tempos will add confidence to your dancing and will assure fun and relaxation for your partner.
The basic components of the Fox Trot are walking steps and side steps. Crowded dance floors and nightclub conditions require short steps. In larger ballrooms the slow Fox Trot is characterised by longer, smooth and gliding steps, with an ease of movement and control giving this dance an unhurried appearance.
