The Foxtrot is a smooth American dance introduced to the public in 1913 by Harry Fox, noted for being the first dance to incorporate into the rhythm a combination of Slows and Quicks. Characterized by elegant walking-style movements danced to silky or upbeat jazz tunes by artists including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Tony Bennett, Harry Connick Jr., Michael Buble and the new crop of contemporary jazz artists. It is one of the most elegant and sophisticated of the ballroom dances. Think Fred and Ginger, top hats and tails! This isn't a slow dance- although it is smooth, good music is mid-tempo, and is therefore easy for beginning dancers to keep their balance while learning. This is one of the most useful ballroom dances to learn!
