Fox Trot

The Foxtrot began its run in 1912, and is credited to vaudeville performer Harry Fox. Since then it has become the most popular of the social dances. Because of the physical closeness and conversational style the Foxtrot was originally deemed “dirty dancing” and was thought to be indecent behavior since it permitted dancers to hold each other closer than an arm’s length. It is still used socially today and is a wonderful tool in developing smoothness and ease of movement on the dance floor.
