Foxtrot 1 (Basics)

Foxtrot is a fun and elegant ballroom dance. In the early 20th century, Ragtime music spawned a whole new set of dances like the Turkey Trot, Bunny Hug, Kangaroo Hop and Castle Walk.

The story goes that in 1914, a vaudeville performer named Harry Fox did his version at Ziegfield’s Follies in New York. Fox’s original fast and jerky trot was later smoothed out and standardized into ballroom Foxtrot.

Foxtrot has a lighthearted, casual feel. You’ll encounter opportunities to dance it not only in ballrooms, but also at piano bars, weddings and other social events.

Come learn to glide across the floor with this fun, classic dance. Absolutely no dance experience or partner required.

Price: $25 for 4-week series
