Named after Vaudeville actor and comedian, Harry Fox, this dance originated in New York in 1914.

Sometimes called the slow foxtrot because the original foxtrot split into two separate dances: the slow foxtrot and the quickstep. 

The foxtrot is a graceful staple of the ballroom dances and is characterized by two slow steps followed by two quick steps.

Here Candy and Ryan show us the level of grace and expertise that can be achieved with practice, dedication and continued learning.

We hope that this list of songs inspires your home practice.
