The Foxtrot is a smooth dance characterized by long, continuous, flowing movements across the dance floor. It may look similar to the Waltz, but it is danced to upbeat big band music. Developed in the 1910s, the foxtrot reached its height of popularity in the 1930s and remains practiced today.

There are three types of Foxtrot: the American Social Style, the American Continuity Style, and the International Style. We teach all three at Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Raleigh and if you’re not sure which one you’d like to learn, don’t worry! Our instructors will help you decide and tailor each lesson to your goals.
