About Quickstep

50 bars per minute, 4/4 time Basic Rhythm is Slow-Quick-Quick

Developed in the 20’s in England, it grew out of the Foxtrot, but with its incorporation of dances like the Charleston, it evolved into a very dynamic dance with hops, runs and quick-steps. The challenge is to make the dance elegant like the Foxtrot, while, at the same time, being very light and sprightly, as it progresses rapidly about the dance floor.
