The beginnings of quickstep

This time Jan and Natália prepared a quick quickstep for you. This dance is one of the standard dances, also called fast foxtrot. It is played in 4/4 time and we count it slow slow quick quick. The basic movement is the so-called quarter turns, danced in a closed, tight position.

We can trace the history of quickstep since 1924. The organizers of the star championship then decided to combine the newly created quick time foxtrot with the competition in Charleston. “Frank Ford won with his newly invented form of flat charleston, which, although basically fast foxtrot or quickstep, as it was supposed to be understood at the time, did not resemble much, but its variations tolerated quite well compared to today’s quickstep,” says Wikipedia.

The basics of fast foxtrot are based on the previous symbiosis of slow and fast foxtrot, so in 1929 they only added some elements. And so quickstep, as we all know it today, was born.

Learn it now and you too! It only takes two minutes to “squeeze” the basic steps, you will see yourself in the video!
