Smooth and elegant, the Foxtrot evolved to incorporate the walking and brush steps that make this dance popular with beginners and advanced dancers alike. Foxtrot is danced to music with two rhythms: slow-slow-quick-quick and slow-quick-quick. It all began in a New York vaudeville theatre in 1914, danced in a series of trotting steps to ragtime music.
A beautiful dance, rich in history, the Waltz is characterized by elegant “rise and fall” techniques, romantic turns, and swinging body actions. The Waltz is the oldest of the ballroom dances, dating from the 8th century German folk dance the“Ländler”. Then evolving into the Walzer, meaning “rotating motion” it became the Waltz. Expanding in popularity, from Germany to Paris in the 1800’s, the Waltz then glided across the channel to England, and finally made its way to the United States.
Elegant and poised, the Viennese Waltz is characterized by its speed (twice as fast as Waltz) in three-quarter time, it lessons the rise, fall and sway of the traditional Waltz. The air of magic of the Waltz was enhanced in the early 1700’s by two Austrian composers Lanner and Strauss into the faster Viennese Waltz.
Quickstep is a Ballroom Dance that flows with a fast beat The Quickstep evolved in the 1920s from a combination of the Foxtrot, Charleston, Shag, Peabody, and One-step. The dance is English in origin and was standardized in 1927.
Highly passionate dance, the Tango branched away from its original Argentine roots by allowing European, American, Hollywood, and competitive influences into the style and execution of the dance. Tango was born in the slums of Buenos Aires in the late 19th century. The roots of this dance lie in African Candombe, Cuban Habanera as well as waltzes and polkas.
