Slow Foxtrot

Slow Foxtrot is a beautiful, elegant dance, but it is notorious for being the most difficult of the standard ballroom dances. The look of the Slow Foxtrot, with its simple, graceful lines and its steady rhythm of “slow-quick-quick”, belies the technical knowledge and physical skill it takes to produce it. It is therefore not advisable for beginners to start with this one. In time and with lots of practice, however, the Slow Foxtrot can become the smoothest and most enjoyable ride around the floor.
