The Quickstep is a fun party dance that originated as a fast version of the Foxtrot. Originally called QuickTime, it includes elements of the Charleston.
In this 47-minute video dance class, you’ll learn the basic elements of Quickstep with a common group of figures that you can use to dance around the room by simply joining the end of the group back to the beginning.
Who is this course suited for?
- Anyone learning for the very first time, with no dance experience
- Those who have danced, maybe even for years, but with no formal training
- Those who learned the Quickstep a long time ago and need a refresher
You’ll learn how to follow the music, important details about posture and Quickstep movement, and the proper Ballroom hold. Figures covered include the Quarter Turn to Right, Chasse, the Forward Lock and the Natural Pivot Turn.
Former champions George and Wendy finish off the program by showing you how you can link these figures back to the beginning to dance beautifully around the room.
