Social Foxtrot vs. Slow Foxtrot

Foxtrot is a slow progressive dance that is as popular today as it was in the 1940s when it first gained great popularity. Since that time it has evolved from its simple roots into several different styles and dances, including the American Style Foxtrot, the International Style Slow Foxtrot, and the Quickstep. The original dance is now widely known as the Social Foxtrot or Rhythm Foxtrot.

Social Foxtrot (watch video demo here) provides an easily repeatable basic movement which first-time dancers can quickly learn (2 walks forward, side close, 2 walks back, side close, and repeat). Despite being designated a Foxtrot, this dance was designed to be enjoyed to a wide and varied range of music; from blues to Quickstep, from Tango to Rock’n’Roll and even some current chart music.
