Some people might consider the traditional social dance a bit slow for their tastes. Quickstep, like the Jive and Swing, is the opposite!

Quickstep Has an Interesting History All Its Own

Quickstep is popular at dance competitions because it’s a great couples’ dance that revs up the crowds! But no worries, beginner Quickstep starts much slower to allow dancers to get their footwork in sync.

Funny enough, Quickstep is actually an evolution of two other ballroom dances — the Charleston and the Foxtrot. Dancers in England in the 1920s adapted the methodical Foxtrot and trendy Charleston and created the Quickstep. As time moved along, the Quickstep became a very fast dance and now, part of the fun is seeing how fast competitors can move while staying in sync.
