The Foxtrot is a Ballroom dance that consists of walking steps, chasses (step side, close step), and quarter turns danced in 4/4 time and is influenced by ragtime music. Couples usually hold each other in the traditional ballroom position, but numerous variations are done in other positions. With its smooth and sophisticated feeling, most figures are designed for the larger ballroom floor, which you’ll find at Modern Dance Steps Dance Studio in Naples.

The Foxtrot, a popular ballroom dance in Europe and America since about 1914, it is named for Harry Fox, a vaudeville dancer and comedian. Fox was believed to be the first to use the “slow step,” hence… the birth of the Foxtrot.
