A beautiful, romantic dance, the Foxtrot is composed of fairly simple walking steps and side steps. The dance combines
slow steps, which use two beats of music, and quick steps, which use one beat of music. The footwork timing is usually "slow, quick, quick" or "slow, slow, quick, quick." The Foxtrot must be danced very smoothly, with no jerking of the body. Timing is also a very important component of the Foxtrot.
