International Quickstep

International Quickstep Classes

Quickstep, similar to a fast paced Foxtrot, carries very distinct techniques and patterns. It was derived in the 1920's from Foxtrot, Charleston, Shag, Peabody and One Step. It began in England but has evolved internationally into a dynamic dance with many advanced patterns that use lots of rotation and momentum. Developed to ragtime jazz, the quickstep lives up to its name as a fast and energetic dance.

Beginning

Learn the basics of this elegant dance that is also a great exercise!  The Quickstep has lots of fast footwork and grace to keep you moving all night.

Beginning
Beg Quickstep
Quickstep is the vigorous, lively version of its distant cousin the foxtrot. Instead of a slow, calculated set of walking movements, think of this dance as a brisk jog around the dance floor to quick, high-energy swing music! This class is an overview on posture and frame, and moves such as natural turns, reverse turns, and progressive chasses you'll use to dance to a song, such as Glenn Miller's "In The Mood". Try this class and learn ballroom's most exuberant dance!
