Written in 4/4, it can be danced to most music types, whether slow or fast. If you can walk, you can dance the Fox Trot! Hitting the streets of New York City in the 1920’s, the Fox Trot emerged as a lively, bouncing dance which America’s youth went wild over. The Fox Trot was popularized by Harry Fox, a young vaudeville comedian who incorporated a bouncy, trotting step nicknamed the Fox Trot. Today, the Fox Trot has evolved into a dance of social elegance, characterized by smooth, graceful and gliding movements and enjoyed by people of all ages. You can dance the Fox Trot to the music of the “crooners”, like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin to the contemporary artists such as Harry Connick and Michael Buble.
