Dancing the Fox Trot
Foxtrot is a very glamorous dance possessing a smooth and sauntering style and is danced to a 4/4 time signature. Foxtrot originated in 1914 by a Vaudeville actor named Harry Fox. the Foxtrot is one of the most versatile of the dances because it can be danced to a variety of music styles and tempos. Visions of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers come to mind when one thinks of the Foxtrot.
Because of the smooth dance style, the Foxtrot is often referred to as the Rolls Royce of the standard dances. Once you learn the Foxtrot, you really feel like a ballroom dancer.
When dancing the Foxtrot, dancers take long steps during the slower counts, and short steps during the faster counts. In order to maintain the “trot” of this dance, dancers should shorten their steps as the tempo of the music increases. Some of the steps create attractive zig-zag patterns on the dance floor.
The Foxtrot is typically danced to big band swing-style music, but may be danced to many other types of music. In the Foxtrot, the first and third beats are accented more strongly than the second and fourth beats. The foxtrot is typically danced to big band swing-style music written in 4/4 time, with tempo around 120 to 136 beats per minute.
